We had attended a wedding hosted by Sonho a dois and absolutely loved it , so when it came to ours there was no other choice . Noelia and the girls were so good throughout all the planning. They were patient with all our annoying emails and so professional. Noelia went out of her way to make sure we were 100% happy when we went to visit venues On the day of the wedding one of the planners was always with me from early morning which completely relaxed and reassured me. I knew that if anything needed to be done they were right there, even when my veil blew off just before I walked up the aisle, Noelia was only 2 steps away and rescued me !! The wedding went without a hitch and everyone thoroughly enjoyed the whole day and it was all down to the hard work of Noelia and the team We can't thank them enough or fault them in any way. We have done and will continue to recommend them to friends and family Thank you for making our day amazing Maeve and Andrew Matheson
Wow – where to start? Carla is amazing! From the day we started communicating with Sonho until the very end she was 100% available, completely present and more than willing to ensure this becomes the most memorable day of our lives...and it has. Nothing was ever a problem and her bright, bubbly, positive personality was an absolute pleasure to work with. From start to finish, Carla took meticulous care of every detail to ensure our vision was brought to life. When we stood there at the end of the evening (almost the next morning) we were at awe at how well everything turned out and I congratulate her for the perfect execution. We wanted a wedding close to a beach. All her suggestions were laid out with their respective pros and cons along with alternatives. She is well connected and can had updates almost instantly. I personally saw how well and authentic her networking abilities are. Needless to say that got us everything on our list. We had numerous requirements,photographers, DJ, meals, flowers arrangement, hairdresser etc, all organized and arranged by her. We just showed up! We had her support even when we couldn't make decisions fast enough. I am sure we have all heard planning a wedding is not easy, but it can be if you have Carla, Sonho by your side. In fact I will go even further and say expect to be bedazzled as she will not only meet your expectations but exceed them. Thank you Carla. Beijinhos
Charlie & Sam, september 2014 I happened upon the Sonho a Dois website as I was trying to find some way to plan an Algarve wedding from London and it turned out to be the luckiest find I have ever made. A wedding is something that is very difficult psychologically to put into the hands of a stranger and trust can be a major issue, along with the "foreignness" of the whole thing. Would language be a problem? Do the Portuguese have ways of doing things and looks and styles that I would never want at my wedding? Would the team at Sonho a Dois understand what I wanted and would they be able to create what I asked for? I needn't have worried because Noélia and her team created a day for us that just blew everyone away. It was amazing and it was entirely down to Sonho a Dois. The Sonho ladies seem to have some kind of sixth sense and know what you want and what you mean even when you can't quite get it straight in your own mind. All the suppliers from the caterers to the venue owners to the florists to the photographers to the car suppliers have a huge amount of respect for the way the Sonho team works and are therefore willing to go that extra mile to give them what they, and therefore what you, want. The ones that aren't willing to do that dont't last long on Sonho's books. Noélia and her team took all the stress out of the eight months of planning, even for an impatient control freak like me. No detail was neglected and I never had to chase up emails or information. If Noélia wasn't available then one of the others would always reply to me so I knew exactly what was happening and never had to worry. The whole process was so easy that I began to worry that I must have missed something but I hadn't - Sonho a Dois had it all under control. On the day of wedding Noélia and Sandra took complete control and everything run like clockwork. Amazingly, however, once at the venue they just melted into the background and the only way we knew they were there was because everything was going right. There wasn't a single thing we had to sort out or think about ourselves because the team had it covered, right down to getting the guests home again at the end of the night, and there were so many little details and extras that Noélia had thrown in throughout the day that it really was a stunning event, the like of which I've never experienced elsewhere. I didn't have to "settle" for anything - everything was top quality and genuinely world-class. No compromises, no disappointments. It was perfect. It's hard to find the words to adequately convey to a third party how utterly brilliant the Sonho a Dois team is and to reassure anyone trying to choose a wedding planner that you genuinely couldn't get a better, more trustworthy, more professional group of people than the Sonho a Dois ladies. They are worth every penny (and more, in my opinion!) and really have to be seen in action to be believed. And like lots of other couples have already said (although you always assume this must just be na axaggeration, written while they're still high on romance), these girls will become friends for life. It's true. So thank you Sonho a Dois, from the bottom of our hearts. We couldn't have done it without you and we wouldn't have wanted to.
What can we say about Noelia and her team at Sonho a Dois? They are an amazing team and they saved our wedding day! We first signed up with a different Algarve wedding planner in October 2013. To say this was a disaster would be an understatement, venue & church weren't booked or even reserved, etc etc, I won't go on. We cancelled this service in November 2013 and by coincidence Noelia & Carla were in Dublin that same weekend doing a meet & greet. We jumped in the car and drove to Dublin early on Saturday morning, Noelia kindly squeezed us in to their already hectic schedule. We explained where we had been at with the other planner and within 3-4 days Noelia had the venue, church etc pinned down and secured for our wedding date of 12th Sept, the rest was detail which we could sort out later. To say we were relieved would be an understatement! We later found out that Noelia already had 2 weddings booked for the same date of 12th September and they normally will only do 2 weddings per day, so they could have easily said no. We felt so lucky. After that everything was superb, Noelia, Carla & their team gave us an excellent service. I wasn't convinced on the idea of a wedding planner when my wife mentioned it at the start, but when you see how much there is to do with a wedding abroad and how much can go wrong, not to mention making sure you are legally married, it made a lot of sense and the extra expense was an absolute bargain!! Noelia worked with us the whole way along to make sure we got what we wanted and also that we got good value for our money. They really work hard for you. Some people might say that wedding planners are pushy and out to sell you their own suppliers, but that is absolutely not the case here. If we wanted to change anything or swap to someone we had found (we found our own photographer, flowers and post wedding party venue, none of which Noelia had used before), it was no trouble at all. On the big day, Noelia was like a sneaky ninja, she was always one step ahead and everything was really seamless, so we didn't have to worry. This meant that we and more particularly my wife, really got to enjoy and savour everything about our wedding day, as it can go so fast if you are rushing & worrying. We've been at 22 weddings in the last 3 years and at 21 of them the bride always looked worried about "have the band been paid" or "did mum get the right dessert" etc, all that stuff. Not so for us, Noelia was on top of everything and that meant a brilliant day for us. In summary, Myself and my now wife, Deborah, couldn't have asked for better. If you're considering getting married in the Algarve, we couldn't recommend Sonho a Dois highly enough, they are BRILLIANT! Thank you so much guys!! Conor & Deborah
