Thank You For Our Perfect day!

The biggest thank you from our heart to Stella Virdi for making our big day as perfect as it was. Having to arrange our wedding very quickly and express last minute wedding, we still wanted to make it feel special- having chosen to do it in Cyprus as an intimate ceremony.

Stella was absolutely wonderful from the start and can honestly say we would not have been able to get everything done and formalities so quickly and easily as we did. We literally flew in the day before the ceremony and received all paperwork including special additional stamps (apostilles and foreign ministry stamps) by the afternoon after the wedding. She was always responsive and definitely knew her way around the process aspects and helped us arrange a beautiful and intimate ceremony, including a great photographer and hair / makeup artist with ease. Big thank you Stella, Dimitri the photographer, Maria and Sarah (hair and make-up) for making our day wonderful and memorable!

Taking The Stress Out Of Marrying Abroad

After the trials and tribulations of trying to marry abroad as an expat with all the legal issues and red tape, dealing with Stella Virdi and getting married in Paphos was like a breath of fresh air!

From day one when we first contacted Stella to the big day itself, we were very pleased with the support we received. Dealing with somebody who understands all the requirements and who can process all the paperwork needed from a couple living and working in the UAE, Stella arranged  everything like the flowers and photographers and lets you just sit back and actually enjoy the wedding with as little stress as possible.

Thank you Stella – we couldn’t have had such a lovely day without your support!

Wedding of our Dreams

We had our perfect wedding in Minthis Hills last September and it was all thanks to the amazing Stella (and Natalie from Minthis).

We live in Dubai and after we got engaged we chose Paphos as our wedding destination. We found Stella online and when we met we had an immediate connection – we knew straight away she was the one for us.

Planning a wedding from abroad sounds challenging but with Stella’s help it was super easy. She offered us a choice of venues, photographers and florists  etc. and also gave us her recommendation of the best to match the style of the wedding we wanted to have.

We didn’t need to worry about anything – just to come for our wedding. On the day itself Stella made sure that everything went exactly according to plan, leaving us to think only about each other. Everything went perfectly and our guests are still talking about how amazing our wedding was.

A million Thank-Yous Stella for a day that we will never forget ❤️

Paperwork and Documentation required

Paperwork, Documentation and legalities can be daunting with any wedding, and when getting married abroad even more so. At Exclusive Weddings we are very familiar with all documentation needed for your wedding in Cyprus, and we hope to make this process easy and understandable to all our couples.

At Exclusive Weddings we make sure that all documentation and administration requirements are met, checked and accurate, before your arrival here in Cyprus. We are able to consult with you at every step of the way.

It is important to understand that when getting married in Cyprus, we need to make sure that your marriage is legal and recognized so within your country of residence. This requires some extra formalities. You’re Marriage Certificate, and possibly other documentation, will need to be seen and stamped by appropriate government ministers, relative to your country of residence, all countries having different rules and regulations to comply to. This process can take up to 2 working days following the marriage. We use secure and professional courier services which ensure the departure and arrival of your documents. Exclusive Weddings makes sure the documents get to you, whether you are still in Cyprus, or you have returned back in your country of residence.

We can also assist in obtaining your Affidavit (Freedom to Marry) Certificates here in Cyprus. This only applies to British, Canadian and American passport holders –  you will be personally assisted to get these here in Cyprus, as with your marriage License.

It is important to note that those who wish to fast track their marriage will need to be in Cyprus for one full weekday (Monday to Friday). Civil wedding ceremonies and application for a marriage license to marry only take place from Monday till Friday; it is important to note any local bank holidays also.


Some couples don’t want anything but the civil ceremony and to return to their country of residence legally married and with an official marriage certificate.  Be aware that even with being here just the one day, we do not have to overlook any part of your wedding. Arrangements for transport, photography and bridal hair and makeup can still be made, as well as anything else you may have in mind to make the day memorable.

Our Wonderful Paphos Castle Wedding Day.

We have now arrived back home in rainy Northern Ireland Andy my husband and I wanted to let you know how that thankful we are for all that you did for is before and on our big day.


We both knew as soon as we got engaged on 02 Jul 2016 that we wanted to get married a year later on the 03 Jul 2017, we didn’t really know where to start. We did some research and a friend of mine had got married in Cyprus a few years early and she told us about Stella Virdi  and gave us her email address, so we emailed her to ask for further details. She got back to us very quickly and we immediately got a good feel about her efficiency and personality, and had our castle wedding booked within a few days.


Our wedding was very small, just the two of us, and 11 guests and I was slightly concerned that a wedding so small wouldn’t really be her priority, I was so 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.

All the planning was so easy, we just talked on WhatsApp and we sent her pics of what we wanted and that’s exactly what we got. 

She gave us great advice on everything we needed to do in advance of the big day, including a sample affidavit which we just needed to print and get signed by our solicitor.

She arranged to pick us up from our hotel in Paphos to go to the town hall to get all our paper work in order a week before the wedding and it all went incredibly smoothly – we were in and out within minutes! She took us to our venue and the restaurant to go through all the details.

 On the big day, she had arranged for Maria who was amazing, (and had done my nails for me the day before) to come and do my hair and make up as well as my bridesmaid  (my 11 year old daughter) and 4 other guests. Stella 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 helped to dress my youngest daughter who cried at every dress fitting but Stella kept her at ease and also did her hair for me. Sherie. (Stella’s daughter) did all the décor in the castle and it looked amazing and she also set up the restaurant tables which also looked amazing.

 She arranged for a great photographer Andrzej who photographed me getting into my dress and the ceremony and then took his time talking photos inside the castle and outside, he also did some sunset pics which he took the 2 of us away in his car where it was quite and peaceful and it was all about the 2 of us which was lovely. 

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

Thanks so much Stella and team
