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.
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.’

‘I would like to express my deepest gratitude to Stella Virdi who did such a fantastic job in organizing our wedding day.
She made it perfect without us even being there. (we arrived only one day before our wedding day). I could not have asked for a better wedding planner. Everything went smooth and exactly as we had planned. Stella was always helpful and supportive, starting from planning and preparation till the actual wedding day.
I would highly recommend Stella to anyone who is looking for a wedding planner to make this special day perfect and without any stress and worries. Thank you again Stella for making our day absolutely beautiful and unforgettable.’

Comments from Stella
‘Congratulations to you both, may you always be in love and happy, wishing you the best of luck and much happiness in your future together’
I loved this small intimate wedding and as always, my pleasure to organise romantic weddings for couples eloping from all over the world and of many different nationalities. Many of which i organize in a matter of days. Anastasia is Russian and her new Husband Lebanese, they reside in the UAE, living and working in Dubai. Organizing such weddings and advising on documentations necessary to have a civil ceremony in Cyprus that is recognized in the country of residence my job. Best job in the world, always such a happy day!

It was so lovely to receive this photo-thank you card this morning in the post.
Knowing that Marina and Sven had the most wonderful wedding and a magical day makes me love me job even more.
They married at the stunning Cap St Georges; a perfect resort to enjoy amazing views and switch off and relax. Large or small wedding parties can enjoy five star service where the staff will take care of their every wish. This venue boasts one of the most unspoiled views of the Mediterranean in Paphos. For more information on getting married at this venue contact Stella Virdi at firstname.lastname@example.org
I chose Stella Virdi (Exclusive Weddings Cyprus) to be our wedding planner after doing some research online, and reading the fantastic reviews from previous couples. I sent a tentative e mail initially as it was a very small wedding party (just the two of us actually!), and I wasn’t sure whether Stella would take on such a small job. Her response was amazing – she reassured us that she would be delighted to work with us, and said that although she does work on very large and very expensive and elaborate weddings, she loves the small, intimate affairs just as much.
We explained the sort of thing that we were after and Stella came back with several ideas for the venue. We chose Peyia, an old walled courtyard in the hills behind Paphos, and it proved to be an absolutely beautiful setting. Over the weeks and months before the wedding day Stella was in touch regularly. We sent her photos of us and a brief history as she was keen to get a feel for who we are, and this type of personal attention carried on throughout.
Stella advised us on the legalities and the documentation required to get married in Cyprus and she made things really easy for us. She also arranged a fabulous bouquet of yellow roses for me and a matching button hole for the groom, and arranged hair and make up appointments for me both I terms of a prior trial and the appointment on the day . I was delighted with both.
After we arrived in Cyprus, Stella collected us from the hotel and took us in her car to the courtrooms sign affidavits and then to the town hall to apply for the wedding license. She has the bubbliest and most friendly personality and we loved her immediately. Nothing was too much trouble and we felt she was totally focused on our wedding day even though she had other weddings immediately previously and afterwards. She helped us plan out the day in terms of getting to the venue (I was concerned that my fiancé didn’t see me at the hotel, so he went first in a taxi and Stella came and collected me so that I met him there). She helped us with music for the ceremony and even brought fresh rose petals to throw as confetti. She also helped us decide where to go afterwards for champagne and where to eat later.
We are both 60 years old and this was not our first marriages. We wanted secrecy (no one at home knew we were getting married until after we had flown to Cyprus) and intimacy, and Stella delivered in spades. We had the most fantastic and romantic wedding day, and it was just perfect in every way, orchestrated and arranged by Stella. We will be keeping in touch with her, and will be sure to meet her for dinner when we return to Cyprus next year.
If you are planning a wedding in Cyprus please contact Stella Virdi – you simply could not make a better choice.
