About Stella

Zaffron Weddings Cyprus

I Stella Virdi, have been living in, and loving, Cyprus for over 20 years!

How did I start? I fell into the family restaurant business by accident but found myself comfortably falling into the position of Hostess with ease. Making sure all my customers’ needs were taken care of and that they had the best time, no matter what. Everyone was looked after, totally comfortable and completely satisfied.

And was born Zaffron Weddings! An extension of one of our beautiful restaurants. A small personable company where I get to be hostess once again; for those brides and grooms who require the excellence I am ready to give.

I have been dealing with weddings now for the past 10 years. So far I have produced and been grateful to be a part of an endless list of weddings with happy brides, grooms and wedding ceremonies; something I am very proud of.

For the past 10 years I have been coordinating wedding for couples from abroad, who dream of the perfect day in the sun, on the Island of Love. And I love every one of them!

I work hard, I have a keen eye; I can orchestrate, conduct, coordinate and choreograph your dream wedding, AND I love doing it. I employ a team of people who are just as, if not more passionate than me, and we all love what we do. From intimate gatherings to spectacular presentations, it’s a job I (we) love. Every wedding is important and only the best will do.

I hope I can provide the best options for every couple I meet. I make myself available throughout the whole process, and your wedding day, and even afterwards; just to make sure you are fully satisfied with your whole experience with me. I want it to be as perfect as you had imagined.

Weddings by me are… Whatever you want them to be, whatever you have imagined – suited to your budget and your expectations.

Let me make your dream wedding come true!

    From emails to calls and texts you was always there to answer any queries I had.
    You took all of the stress out of getting married abroad.
    From the day we landed in Cyprus, you was there helping us out not only with wedding bits but with general holiday queries too. You showed us around Paphos, and made us feel so relaxed about everything!

    We are two of the most laid back people and our day would not have been so special without the help and guidance of Stella.

    We can not thank her enough for all the hard work she put in to making our day stress free and exactly how we imagined it would be.

    Stella, you have helped us plan our special wedding day and you have thought about many things we hadn't really thought about ourselves. We can be a bit too laid back really. Without you, we wouldn't have had the day we did, which to us was the perfect wedding day

    Jim & I are so very grateful for everything you did to make our wedding day the most perfect day we could ever have imagined. I just can't believe you managed to arrange everything in less than 3 weeks! With us being in Dubai you made it all so easy. Our day could not have been any better, from the perfect venue you suggested, to the photographer, great hairdresser, the beautiful flowers, the ease with which you took us around Paphos to complete all the legal stuff and church requirements.

    Helen & Phil May 2013

    With Stella Virdi's help it was an extremely relaxed and enjoyable day. For many months before the wedding, Stella was always available on email or Skype and was able to answer any questions that we had. Due to language barriers etc I felt very anxious about the formalities and paperwork etc but Stella kindly spent the majority of a day driving us around to various places in Paphos and Polis and made the legal bits painless and straight forward.

    If you are in a quandary about what wedding planner to instruct in Cyprus all I can advise is that if you want the very best service, from a lady who really cares about whether you have the wedding you want then choose Stella. Personally I clicked with Stella from the start as she really is wonderful. What you see is what you get with her and if I were to do my wedding 100 times over I would go with Stella every time. From start to finish on our day she was discreetly running the show and making sure everything ran smoothly ensuring that us and our guests were happy.
