We first heard about Stella Virdi from a colleague who had been out in Cyprus at one of her weddings, and getting in touch with her was one of the best decisions we’ve ever made. From our initial e-mail making contact she was able to establish exactly the kind of wedding we were envisioning, and was able to recommend a beautiful venue.
We literally exchanged hundreds of e-mails as well as phone calls and Skypes, and no problem or query was too small and she went above and beyond to help bring our perfect day together. We went out on a trip to Cyprus prior to the wedding, where she spent time showing us around the venue and suppliers.
When our wedding finally came around, she made everything a breeze – all the legal bits, town hall etc. were handled professionally and swiftly, and on the day itself she was on hand to make sure everything went perfectly to plan (and even the tiny things that didn’t go to plan we didn’t need to worry about, as Stella was on it!). Stella took brilliant photos of our day and had them ready on discs for us and our parents, which was a lovely touch and allowed us to look back on everything before the official ones arrived.
In addition, Stella’s contacts are amazing and all the suppliers and professionals she put us in touch with were brilliant and truly helped us have the wedding we had dreamed of. In particular we have to mention:
Maria and her team who did amazing hair and make-up – I had been slightly worried as I didn’t have a trial but I showed her photos and the end result was a million times better than the pictures!
Andrew our priest and Helen at the Anglican Church of Paphos took the time to get to know us beforehand, looked after us and our guests during the ceremony and Andrew did a lovely, very personal service which meant a lot to both of us and our families.
Blue Jar, our musicians, did a fantastic job of playing during our ceremony and they also performed our first dance, which was so good that one of our guests thought it was a pre-recorded version until they realised it was Lesley singing. Spine tingling!
Paris of Enchanted Flowers did the most beautiful bouquets and decorations, which everyone commented on, and which made the venue look absolutely amazing. They which matched our dress and style of wedding perfectly. It was such a privilege to be able to work with her.
Jo and Jackie at Love Island Cakes, who made us the most gorgeous and delicious wedding cake and biscuit place names, as well as cupcakes for the bridal party to have whilst getting ready.
Sherie and Jasmine, who helped us with all our additional decorations.
I cannot recommend Stella from Zaffron Weddings highly enough for anyone planning a wedding in Cyprus and would like to thank her again for all her help and hard work.
