Sonho a Dois – A detailed review. Like you are doing now, my then finance and I were researching wedding planners in the Algarve trying to determine which company was best to go with for planning and organising one of the most important days of our lives. When we looked at the endless five out of five-star reviews we thought – could they be this good? In actual fact they were better. Brief background on our situation – we are an Irish couple, living in Australia who had never been to Portugal before. Put simply we didn’t know where to begin. Having decided on Sonho a Dois we sent an email to introduce ourselves and gather information on their services and advice on what our options were. It was at this point we were introduced to the wonderful Sandra! From the outset, prior to any contract or formal commitment, Sandra provided all the information we could possibly ask for regarding the wedding process in Portugal, possible venue options, legal requirements, outline of estimated costs and all other information that we requested. After appointing Sandra we then decided on a venue and a date. From then on we were in constant contact with Sandra over many, many months and there was never a time where she wasn’t available to answer any of our queries or concerns. Whilst we manly communicated via email there were numerous times we had a Skype session together and these sometimes lasted close to two hours! For the entire process, Sandra provide us with options for every possible aspect of the wedding. From menu, flowers, photographer, videographer, band, transport, hair & makeup, babysitter, décor, registrar, timings…….. you name it – Sandra had an option to choose and more importantly had it covered once decided and made sure it was as planned on the day. Once my fiancé and I finally arrived in Portugal Sandra met with us, drove us for almost 3 hours to get all of our legal requirements submitted and then took us to the venue to ensure we were happy with every possible aspect of the big day. I am normally quite a detail orientated type of person and plan things extensively (wife would call this being a control freak!) but after the months of planning with Sandra and the day preceding the wedding visiting the venue etc, I can safely say that I was calm on the day of the wedding as I knew that Sandra had everything managed down to a tee and all there was left to do was simply enjoy the day – which we did! To put into perspective how dedicated Sandra was, on the day of the wedding she arrived at our villa with the flowers, ensured the groom was looked after at the hotel, accompanied the bridal party to the venue, had a colleague welcome our guests, ushered guests within the venue, stayed until the wedding finished (3am) ensuring guests got buses and taxis ok and then drove the groom and bride back to their hotel! Even the next day Sandra was able to help us organise an after party bbq at another venue. We did not expect in the slightest for her to also come to this but she did and even liaised with the staff to ensure the food was served at the correct time! A few words about Sandra as a person – Sandra is clearly very well suited to her profession. She is dedicated and passionate to her clients and has a genuine longing to do all that she can to make your wedding day dream a reality. By the end of our wedding week my wife and I felt that Sandra was as invested in our happiness as any of our closest family and friends. She is such a wonderful person and we are so thankful that she was able to be a part of our day. In summary, stop looking at reviews! If you are considering an Algarve wedding Sonho a Dois will provide you complete satisfaction and make the planning of your wedding hassle free and enjoyable! - Liam & Linda Tierney ❤️
I am not sure where to start or how to express our thanks to all the team at Sonho a Dois. Carla you were amazing from start to finish. From our initial meeting we knew we had made the right decision in choosing Sonho a Dois. Carla made us feel at ease from day one, she was knowledgeable and experienced providing us with all the necessary information we needed. The vendors recommended were fantastic. Throughout the whole process we were kept updated and prompted when required. Our wedding day itself was just as we had hoped and the only person to thank for that is Carla and Sonho a Dois. You were always a pleasure to deal with, I wouldn’t hesitate for a minute to recommend you, you made our most special day perfect x
Would like to say a big thank you to Carla and her team. The suppliers that Carla recommended were incredible on the day and we receive our professional photos within a week. Carla on the day was very efficient on making sure everything went to plan and that we kept to the schedule. My wife and I could not recommended Algarve Weddings Sonho a Dois enough.
After a lot of online research, after deciding we would like to hold our dream wedding in Portugal, we chose sonho a dois because they had very good reviews and after initial contact, they felt like they were the perfect company for us. We dealt with Sandra throughout our whole wedding process, 18 months in the planning and were always so happy that Sandra would totally understand our visions and ideas about what we wanted. She had brilliant ideas and recommendations and that was always appreciated. She was super-efficient, knowledgeable , always very prompt at responding to any tiny request and when your that far away from your wedding venue, that is exactly what you need ,to feel super confident that the wedding will go exactly as you’ve planned. We met Sandra in person twice before the actual wedding and she’s a super sweet friendly lady who we’re truly grateful for, as she made our whole pre- wedding and the actual wedding day itself go so seamlessly and be as stress free as it could possibly be. On the actual wedding day she was invaluable and made sure everything went to plan and although in the background, we were always aware she was there, and that was a huge relief that we could just relax (as much as you can when you’re the bride and groom!) and enjoy the day knowing we had Sandra at the helm!! We would 100% recommend sonho a dois, you will be in very safe hands!!
We used sonhoadois for our wedding in June 2019 at The Lake Resort in Vilamoura. We first worked with Carla and then Noelia. We were supported throughout the process and all the supplier they work will are excellent. Make up by Rui was perfect, Sakura for hair was great. We married in Sao Lourenco Church in Almancil which was beautiful. They took away the stress and confirmed everything with the priest ahead of the day. Nicole Silva was with us for the day providing the music and she made the day. I cant recommend her enough!! She sang in the church, at the Welcome reception and then for the evening party. She was brilliant, everyone loved her. We only decided our first dance song about 3 weeks before the wedding and she even learnt the song for us. I cant praise her enough. Chico Salmonte is making our wedding video, he has sent us a 30 second taster and it looks great, cant wait to see the final result. Side by Side were our photographers and were amazing, completely put us at ease. I couldnt fault any supplier, all excellent. Thank you sonhoadois for giving us the best day of our lives :)
