Why did you become a wedding planner?

Well, that is a very interesting question!   I am a fully qualified accountant by profession and moved over to Cyprus after meeting my husband who is Cypriot some 16 years ago.

My personal attributes are organizing and planning things through, no matter what the job is.

I got involved with weddings on Yachts here in Cyprus, due to my husband being a Captain and having an interest in yachts.  I realized that so many British come over to Cyprus to marry and finish up at restaurants, tavernas and back to the hotel, so I thought why not offer them something else..on a yacht.

After that there was no looking back, I became very popular and I found a forte that was hidden beneath me, that really came out, when organizing weddings.

My father inspired and encouraged me to take the company to the top, by providing what they cannot get back in the UK, after a good talk we decided to be able to offer to our clients a service from start to finish, Stationery,  Marriage Venue, Reception Venue, Photography, Transport,  Flowers, Entertainment, right through to them leaving Cyprus!

I simply love to provide what I only can describe as a “fairytale wedding”

What’s your USP?

Well, where do I start?  Location, 350 days of sunshine, offering such beautiful venues from old to new. Contemporary weddings are our specialty!  Being able to offer a perfect wedding from a small budget up to celebrity weddings. 

Being able to understand what exactly the couples want and to adhere to their budget.

  Do you have a favourite venue?

Wow!  Without a doubt the Yachts, unique, private and luxurious. However, I have to say that there are so many beautiful venues for marriages,  St Paul’s Church  (Ayia Kyriaki) is one of my favorites being the oldest and having a lot of historic information. 

How would your clients describe you?

Amazing, perfectionist and nothing whatsoever a problem!

I am always checking everything, right down to the “fluffing” of the favours!

If you could plan a celebrity wedding (alive or dead) whose would it be?

I am proud to say that I have already done celebrity weddings on board the yachts!  These are very popular with the celebs as they are of course unique, private and can get away from all the media when in the sea!

I arrange all security from Airport to hotel and, also full security on the day from transport to yacht.

Our latest celebrity was former Glamour model, Page Three model – Jay Nicholls; this wedding took place in July and was also covered by ITV’s Four Weddings show.

What’s your biggest achievement since launching?

Absolutely everything!  Every day is an achievement, as every wedding is different.  Providing exactly what the couples what and delivery the same, and then receiving the most fantastic write ups ever from them, thanking me for all my work!

Now, going forward on setting up another side of our business Superstar Weddings Cyprus, yes, this side of the company will cover all the Celebrities, as I joined up with Aimi Robinson (Jay Nicholls) to provide a special service for those wanting a “Movie Star” wedding from starting in the UK with their personal wedding planner coming out with them to arriving in Cyprus!
