“Stella, a sincere thank you for everything you have done for us over the last year. Nothing was too big or to small of an ask and you made it all happen. Our wedding day was a dream come true for and it came down to your hard work, tenacity, organisation and passion for what you do. You have shown me compassion, love and understanding through the whole process. I feel fortunate to have met you and consider you a forever friend.
Our wedding was truly magical”
— Elena and Greg Bowie, The Bride & Groom
We are back in the UK and wishing we were back in Paphos. Our wedding and time spent there was amazing. You were a tower of strength from the moment we met and I cannot thank you enough for your support and expertise as my wedding planner.
I felt completely relaxed and was asked on many occasions if I was nervous. I can honestly say that with you at the helm things couldn’t of run smoother. Finding me the right church, reception venue, hotels for our guest, caterers, florist, entertainment, car hire, pre and post wedding events. In fact everything was incredibly well thought out and worked magically on the day. The decoration of the wedding venue was perfect;; I would not have changed one thing. Your choice of suppliers was impeccable and our day was made to feel so special as a result of your choices. I would argue if there was a better wedding planner in Paphos. You handled everything with such class and grace. So on behalf of myself and husband along with all our guest would like to thank you for giving us one of the most memorable days of our lives.
Thanks again Stella Virdi.

It has taken us a while to do this but it certainly doesn’t come as a last minute thought. Josh and I wanted to make sure we took our time to thank you properly Stella Virdi and all of the team that you chose to put together all the pieces of our beautiful day. I am so pleased that I stumbled across your website two years ago and within a few minutes you had already replied answering a long list of my questions. I knew straight away you would be reliable, organised and care for our day as much as we did, and wanted you to be our wedding planner. It was daunting planning a wedding abroad, especially when we had never been to the venue and had no idea who we needed to contact etc for all the things we wanted to achieve. You quickly took all the worry away and organised everything down to the very last detail. My mum and I kept you busy with emails and Skype but nothing was ever too much trouble and we can not thank you enough for your kindness and patience.
My now ‘husband’ and I travelled out to Cyprus in December 2014 to try and find the perfect location for our wedding. We came home disheartened as we couldn’t find the right place which ticked all of our boxes. Thankfully after searching online, I came across Stella and her website and saw pictures of a venue which I had not come across before. I immediately called and spoke with Stella and explained exactly what we were looking for. As my father is Cypriot I wanted to incorporate some Cyprus traditions into a ‘English style’ wedding. As soon as I spoke with Stella I knew that she understood what we were trying to achieve and the fact that her son had recently got married at the venue we were looking at pretty much made my mind up that we couldn’t go wrong with the venue. Within a few days of speaking with Stella the venue was booked, which for us was a big step, as we wouldn’t usually book something without having seen it in person.
I have to say that Minthis Hills was an absolutely stunning location for our wedding. The old monastery set within a courtyard is beautiful and the scenery of hills and trees is breath-taking. This mixed in with a modern clubhouse for the wedding reception created the perfect wedding venue for us. Our guests were all amazed with the venue and each and every one of them complimented on what a wonderful day they had, they are still talking about it now!!
Our perfect day would not have been possible without Stella. She really does an amazing job, from recommending the top suppliers and keeping on top of them once booked to organising the finer details such as legal docs which we would not have had the faintest clue about! She takes the stress away, you really can rely on Stella and be comfortable that she will get things done. She is definitely not afraid to keep everyone in check to make sure the day runs smoothly! It was great to know that she was there throughout day should any issue arise (and to hold the essentials that I couldn’t fit in my bag such as hairspray and make-up!) but it was also lovely to have her be part of our day, the little touch in large confetti cannons that she gave to our guests was a lovely surprise and made for some great photos!
A special mention also to Andrea and Paris for producing such beautiful flowers, the courtyard was like a dream when I walked into it, I couldn’t have wished for anything more. The reception venue was equally as beautiful, it was created just how I had hoped it would be. So a huge thank you to them also!
If you are looking for a musician for your cocktail ceremony then we would really recommend Kirsty Dewar as she is an amazing artist and a really lovely lady. We could have listened to her singing and playing the guitar all night.
We can’t finish without also mentioning Natalie and the staff at Minthis Hills who ensured that our guests were happy, they couldn’t have done any more if they had tried, the service was exceptional!
Stella – Thank you so much for your help leading up to and on the wedding day itself. It really was perfect in every way, we are so glad that we chose Minthis Hills for our venue. If we had one wish it would be to do it all over again!! x
