The current situation of the world has affected our wedding plans in Switzerland this year. We got in touch with her to try see if by some miracle we could push through with our wedding, despite our families not being there, and she was very helpful. Prompt replies and precise details of documents needed, we were on our way to Paphos two weeks later.
On the day of the wedding, she was there on time to pick us up and guide us through the entire process, standing in as our witness as well. Our papers were sent to Switzerland a couple of days later, just in time.
It wouldn’t have all worked out if not for Stella Virdi. And for that we will always be grateful.
If there is anyone who needs a wedding solution, especially during this world Covid crisis, Stella is your answer.
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.
Natalia and Brendan eloped to Cyprus, just the two of them. They had an Anglican ceremony at the quaint chapel of St. Georges chapel on the Beach in Paphos.
Eloping couples need not just choose to have a civil wedding ceremony. Church weddings are also legal and binding weddings with many different nationalities marrying. Natalia is Russian and Brendan is British. On this occasion myself and one of the church vergers acted as witnesses to this very romantic wedding in October 2018. Always a pleasure to be apart of any wedding; large or small. Intimate elopements are fun for me to organise and no less important that lavish affairs.
Church weddings are very meaningful and beautiful ceremonies conducted in English. No matter the nationality of the couple we can accommodate your needs and assure your marriage certificate is attested to be recognized in the country of your origin.
So happy to call Brendan “husband” “We had a great stress-free elopement wedding organised by Stella. It was a fun and special day – we had great advice on the venue for the ceremony, photographer and food. Stella Virdi was always available to support us“.
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.
Where do I start? Stella Virdi really is an amazing women! From the moment I spoke to her I knew that she was the planner for us, nothing was too much trouble and communication was first class! From the very first email to lacing my dress up on the big day, Stella really made our day as perfect as we hoped! My children loved her and my son still talks about Stella now, we will always remember how kind you was to our daughter and how caring You was to her needs!
