Brilliant news! We’ve had confirmation that Sun, Sea and Brides To Be will start transmitting Saturday 26th January on Channel 4 at 3.30pm and weekly after that (subject to any C4 schedule changes). Its all about couples coming over to Cyprus and the wedding planners that plan their big days. I am on SHOWS 6, 10, 12, 16 and 20. In one way dreading watching myself, but exciting to be featured as a planner on this tv show. It was lots of fun filming, who knows maybe there will be a series 2.
In the past few years, a large proportion of my clientele has consisted of international couples living and working in countries like Dubai, Qatar and many more in the Middle East. As you may know, when getting married sourcing the correct documentation needed to get married can be a bit of a headache, especially for foreigners living in UAE countries. However Cyprus, it is easy to arrange civil weddings that are legal as well as making sure that your wedding certificates are authenticated so they are recognised in your country of residence.
I have arranged hundreds of weddings for clients from countries all over the world, but that are based in the UAE. Normally, when couples contact me they often feel rather stressed about the bureaucratic formalities of arranging a civil wedding. My job as a wedding planner is to make the procedure as stress-free as possible so that couples can relax as enjoy their day without having to worry about all the little details.
In addition, geographically speaking, Cyprus is aptly located between the Middle East and the entirety of Europe, being one of the major draws for international couples based in the UAE to get married there. For international couples that have family traveling from far and wide, the island serves as a place somewhere in between. Not to mention its Mediterranean climate, phenomenal sunsets and scenic vistas.
Depending on the couple and their needs and desires, I am able to arrange simple civil weddings where the couples want to elope or those for larger parties with a formal wedding reception dinner. Some of my clients prefer to have their wedding party once they get back home; they just need to get the formalities out of the way. It is sometimes necessary that they marry urgently and this is possible as long as they have the correct documentation ready to go.
Beyond the paperwork, I am involved in arranging any extras that you might want on your special day, such as bridal hair and makeup, a bridal bouquet, flowers, a wedding cake, a photographer, reception dinners, DJ, and much more.
So if you’re wanting to get married in Cyprus, but don’t know where to start I will walk you through the process, step by step, so you can anticipate your special day with ease!

We had the perfect wedding day, everything was just as we imagined.
All of the suppliers that were used were of the highest quality. Cake, flowers, make up, photography. All better than we expected
Stella Virdi has a great deal of experience and knowledge of the area and was able to offer the best possible venues for our day, to fit with our dream.
On the day, everything is taken care of, no need to worry about anything at all. Just leave the stress to someone else and enjoy.
After being let down by a wedding planner previously, we were so thankful to find Stella. Having her there, put us at total ease, and we were able to thoroughly enjoy our day!
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.
