Stella Virdi was the only wedding planner we contacted in Cyprus because from the start she was brilliant at responding, keeping in touch and making sure we were as prepared as possible for the big day.
She took care of everything and all we had to do on the day was turn up!
Great to work with and would highly recommend her to anyone considering a wedding in Cyprus.
A true professional with a wonderful and passionate personality that helped to give our day that extra spark.
You may just want to elope, get married quickly for various reasons. Still there is so much emotion involved and as a wedding planner I understand this fully. Just because its just the 2 of you eloping to Cyprus; your wedding is just as special as any grand affair. I love this photo of Sheetal, she got very emotional whilst saying her vows at her wedding to Shijin at Paphos Town Hall.
Repeating after the registrar ‘I Sheetal accept you Shijin as my lawful spouse, to love and to share with you as from this day, moments of joy and sorrow, wealth and poverty, happiness and unhappiness, throughout our life until death do separate us.’
Another year begins and i can wait to get started with my 2018 weddings. Last year was certainly a busy one; with some great weddings and couples. I was also involved with some filming for a tv show which will show on channel 4 this winter. As far as i know its going to be called ‘Hitched in the Sun’. its basically about wedding planners and what they do here to organise the wedding day. the couples are also involved as their weddings are filmed as are they. its a day time show so will be family friendly and i hope entertaining and good viewing. I must say i did pile on some kilos last year (all those wedding buffet), so i am a bit nervous of seeing myself on tv. On the back of how well the show is viewed and ratings, there may be a season 2, so I really hope I can get some on my brides and grooms that are marrying this year to get on board and have their weddings televised. Its all rather exciting and there is lots to look forward to this wedding season. Needless to say the diet has began and lots of new year resolutions started.
Looking back on some fabulous weddings last year. Thanks to all you wonderful couples that booked me to organise your big day. Its always an honor and I thank you for booking me.
Just a few of my awesome couples; wishing them all the best and a long happy marriage.
When we decided on getting married in Cyprus, we didn’t really know where to start. We did some research on Google and came across Stella Virdi’s website so we emailed her to ask for further details. Despite the fact she was on holiday herself, she got back to us very quickly and we immediately got a good feel about her efficiency and personality.
Our wedding was very small, just the two of us, and I was slightly concerned that a wedding so small wouldn’t really be her priority, we were wrong! From the very first correspondence we had with her, she made it clear that our wedding was just as important as a big wedding with multiple guests.
She gave us great advice on everything we needed to do in advance of the big day, including a sample affidavit which ended up saving us quite a lot of money because we were able to create our own and just get them verified by a solicitor.
She arranged to pick us up from our villa in Paphos to submit our wedding licence at the town hall a few days before the wedding and it all went incredibly smoothly – we were in and out within minutes!
On the big day, she had arranged for a fabulous woman to come and do my hair and make up and she personally brought the flowers we had chosen to us and she helped to get me in to my dress which was a wonderful help. She took photos of us so we could share them with people back home and drove us to the ceremony. She was also our witness!
She arranged for a great photographer to attend the ceremony who immediately put us at ease, not an easy task with a photo phobic couple!
We honestly can’t thank Stella Virdi enough for everything she did for us. If you’re after an efficient but incredibly friendly wedding planner who doesn’t leave you hanging waiting for responses to emails, she is your woman! I wouldn’t hesitate in recommending her and her team to help you with your big day.
My wife and I got married in March 2016 I am just now finding time to write a review for Stella , Part of my delay is that realistically, there are not nearly enough nice and fitting words to match the phenomenal service and support Stella provided during the planning and day of our wedding.
We have hired Stella Virdi for full services rather than just day of coordination. And I have to tell Stella that her fees really don’t match her services, she should charge more!
