I really don't know where to start with these girls ! I looked through forums and googled Wedding planners from Algarve and Sonho a Dois always seemed to pop up ! I knew from the first email we would book through them not only because they were popular but because of how many UK weddings they have done that was important to us and also how professional they came across. Nothing was ever to much hassle for Noeila she went above and beyond for us I cannot begin to explain all the little things that she done for us that isn't what you would expect from your wedding planner just to make me feel competely at ease and extra special I never once felt that my wedding was not important too them the way Noeila dealt with us was like we were the only wedding she was planning ( she had loads on that week!!) We swapped pictures back and fourth loads of times if I was unsure about anything at all it got sorted my mind was always put at ease. Noeila actually came over to Scotland to meet with us which was amazing for us to meet our planner face to face and have your mind put to rest was great she answered all my questions about everything before I could even ask! The professionalism from her was second to none they don't push you into anything, tell them your budget and you will get a range of venues, photographers, videographers etc... I have to say every single supplier we had were absolutely fantastic I cannot thank them enough for everything they did to make our day what it was! Our venue was in Balaia golf club, the food was out of this world and the staff there were brilliant. Our band was doublecocktail one word Amazing!! They really made our night it was some party and entertainment they put on, all of our guest are still talking about our wedding and it's thanks to everyone of them but espscially Noeila you were there from start to finish every step of the way you made me so relaxed and calm and that made my day so much better I could tell how much you love your job! You are so lovely and nothing was ever about money if you had a cheaper way of doing things for me you made sure I knew about it and actually saved us some money in the end! I cannot thank you all enough, our day was everything we dreamed of and more, it truly was ! I find myself crying it is all over lol but we have our DVD and photo's to look forward too :) Miss you guys loads!! Girls if you are reading through this for the perfect planners look no further I promise you won't be disappointed !! Gill & John 18/09/14 (Scotland)
We started to look at the prospect of getting married in the Algarve shortly after our engagement in September 2013 and wanted to set our date for September 2014. So we had a look online for wedding planners and venues. We flew out in December to have a look at venues and met Carla who took us to venues that would suit our needs. Carla was extremely helpful and patient and quick to communicate with us during our deliberations on which venue to choose and finally...we selected our special place. We then spent 8 months liaising with Carla on picking our suppliers for photographs and videographer (Joao Ataide and Orlando Horte are amazing!), cake, florist, entertainment (Double Cocktail are a must!). We visited Portugal again in April and July to confirm final arrangements and again Carla kindly took us to the wedding venue again....nothing was too much trouble. Carla also set up meetings with the other suppliers so we could meet those who would be involved in making our day special and memorable. Time quickly slipped by and we found ourselves back in Vilamoura for our special day. Carla met us again and introduced us to Sandra who would be with us throughout the wedding day. The day was fantastic...relaxed and such fun and these ladies are testament to the success of our wedding. We had a ball and every supplier we picked were outstanding. Carla never pushed one supplier over another, she was happy to show us the options and leave the final decision to us. As I am an Event Manager myself, my expectations are high, especially for communication, organisation and attention to detail and Sonho a Dois exceeded these..and more!! Thank you Carla and Sandra....two special ladies who obviously adore your work...for giving us and our guests a wedding day we will never forget! Joanna and Simon (Northern Ireland)
Noelia, I just had to write and thank you and your wonderful team for making my daughter, Charlie and Sam's wedding so magical Everybody said how fabulous it was and everybody enjoyed themselves. I know some of our guests, who came from all over the world, gave you some challenges but everything just ran perfectly. Your suppliers did everything to make the day memorable. You can be proud of what you all achieved yesterday. It was certainly the best wedding I have been to. It was described to me as lavish. Your eye for detail and your ability to see the "big picture" are a real gift and I cannot thank you enough for what you did. The photographs would grace the pages of Hello magazine and are a great memory of this special occasion. You are welcome at our home any time and I hope will remain friends.
From day one, when i first ever contacted Sonho A Dois Algarve Wedding Planners about our nervous idea of a destination wedding, they have been truly supportive, understanding, knowledgeable and patient! They put our minds at ease from the beginning, and were on hand whenever we needed any further guidance, silly questions answering, and general help with the whole wedding. Their recommendations for suppliers was always unbiased, allowing us to decide for ourselves, whilst being on hand to help point out the pros/cons. We werent disappointed with anything from our day as all involved were amazing and surpassed our expectations- from the venue, to the music, to the photographers, to the legal side etc etc- every detail was taken care of and then some. So much so that on the day itself, Nick and i both agree that we werent really all that nervous and were just able to enjoy it! I would recommend their service hands down to absolutely anyone and would say to any couple considering a wedding in Portugal- DO IT! And if you want it done right, use these girls; they took all the stress out of the planning- truly the best money we spent above everything else. Thank again to the girls and Noelia especially- they truly are the best at what they do, and made our day beyond memorable.
I must start by admitting that Luis and I were quite the complicated case! With me living in Dubai and Luis in Cascais, our Alentejo wedding was completely in Carla’s expert hands… and boy did she deliver! From the hanging floral garlands to the rustic seating and floating candles in the pool, live cooking station and great food, incredible recommendations for DJ and photographer, transport for guests staying all over Lisbon and even a very witty registrar! – every detail was taken care of and executed flawlessly. We still have people telling us it was the most stunning wedding they have ever attended. Sonho a Dois works with an incredible team of suppliers and I’d recommend trusting them all the way. And wait till you see how calm and organized Carla is, we were seriously impressed! In her, we have found a new friend and truly brilliant wedding planner :)
