Your Dream, Our Passion!

Wow - what can I say? Only that if you are getting married in the Algarve don’t do another single thing until you book Sonho a Dois! They are beyond AMAZING! We are still on cloud nine three weeks after our most amazing day (or days as Noelia not only organised our wedding but also our pre drinks reception and Day 2 barbecue). All of our guests are raving about all 3 events. Our journey with Sonho a Dois began back in 2016 when they were recommended to me by a colleague who had attended a wedding organised by them. When I told him we were considering getting married in Portugal he wrote the name ‘Sonho a Dois’ on a post it and told me to book them immediately! The same gentleman has pretty exacting standards so I knew if they were getting such an emphatic thumbs up from him that they must be good! And so it began! We flew to the Algarve and met the lovely Carla who patiently showed us venue after venue until we hit on The One (or so we thought!). After provisionally booking a date for 2017 we then changed our minds and decided to postpone the wedding as we were buying a house. Carla was so understanding of our decision. Fast forward to 2018 and we were ready to go again and so we got back in contact with the guys in Sonho and this time the amazing Noelia was our planner. The venue we had initially chosen was suddenly less accommodating to what we wanted and so Noelia suggested a new venue to us that had come on the market since we had last visited – Monte das Oliveiras. When she said she thought we would love it she wasn’t wrong! It is simply magnificent! We met with Noelia in person in Dublin, and on zoom and then we flew out to Portugal in early 2020 to finalise everything and it was all systems go for our wedding date in October 2020. Until Covid came along and once again we had to postpone! It must have been an incredibly stressful time for Noelia and the guys in Sonho and everyone in the industry but Noelia never let us see that. She was the epitome of calm and somehow managed to move our wedding to the same date this year without us having to change or lose a single supplier. In the run up to the wedding this year she was just amazing – giving me a push when I needed it to make decisions, accommodating my MANY requests, patiently answering all my questions and just being so calm and lovely throughout the whole process. The day itself was just out of this world – the venue Monte das Oliveiras is fabulous – the staff were amazing and the food was just incredible – we had a fully vegan menu and it is testament to the chefs that all of our guests (mostly non vegan!) absolutely loved it. The decor, flowers and bouquets from Oura Flores were all simply stunning. Our car from Vintage Cars was a hit with everyone. Our lovely celebrant Guillaume made the ceremony so special. Our guests are still raving about the amazing entertainment from Glam Duo, Nicole Silver Band, DJ Dhanny and Mr Sax, and our dancefloor and selfie mirror from Memory Box. The dancefloor was full all night! Our photographer Marco Torre and videographer Alex from Algarve Films were fantastic, such lovely guys who went over and above to document our great memories of the day. Chloe Davis and Joanna from Jar Studios did a brilliant job on the hair and makeup. It was a wonderful day from start to finish. The guys from Monte das Oliveiras also catered our barbecue at our villa the next day and DJ Dhanny played again for us. All of our guests said it was so good it was like another wedding! We held our pre drinks reception the night before at Castello di Norcia, another beautiful venue with great food. We had the most magical time and our guests can’t stop talking about what an amazing experience it was for them too. I can’t stress enough how this was all down to Noelia’s hard work – she is just amazing! Nothing is too much trouble, there is no problem she can’t solve and she is just the loveliest person. So if you are thinking of getting married in the Algarve just go ahead and book Sonho a Dois – you will be in the best hands and they will make sure your special day is out of this world! Thank you guys so much for everything
