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 :)
Noélia & Sonho a Dois... Where do I start!!! Thank you just doesn't do justice for what you, your company and your suppliers have done for us on our special day. When we sent you our original enquiry last year, we thought our idea of getting married in Portugal would be too difficult and complicated and that we would have to change our mind...how wrong we were! And how glad we are that we contacted Sonho a Dois! Noélia has put me at ease so many times. You have answered all of my questions and so promptly. You respected what we liked as a couple and let us run with it. Even if this meant doing things differently, ie our music and flowers choice! You have a fanastic team and the best thing is you all work together. So when I met Vera on the morning of our Wedding I knew I would get the "Sonho" treatment and be looked after and be kept in the loop with everything. On the note of Vera...wow! What a delight! She was amazing and did so well organsing taxi's for us at the end of the night, which I can imagine can be very stressful! She was patient and always smiling! Every supplier you recommended and booked for us were fantastic! I truly mean that! You were a hovering angel on the day Noélia. We always knew we were in safe hands but I didn't realise what a fantastic Wedding Planner you were until...The Wedding! "Highly recommend" - without a doubt :) Lots of love, Ric & Jess Dolan xxx
What can we say about Sonho a Dois following our amazing wedding at Quinta da Lua, Loule in May 2014? Exquisite attention to detail, nothing too much trouble, choice of suppliers incredible, professional in every way, these girls think of everything and all with a human and friendly touch. Best wedding we could ever have dreamed of, a perfect day. Thank you so much Noelia, Vera and team, we will never forget it.
Well, I cant even begin to explain what an amazing job Noelia & the girls at Sohno a Dois do to ensure your wedding day turns out to be everything you dreamed of. I initially stumbled across the name when I googled weddings in Portugal & emailed them a brief enquiry. Within an hour or two Noelia emailed back looking for some info on what we had in mind & following my reply sent on a few different options of venues & prices etc (which was great because we knew straight away what sort of price range we were in for what we wanted)After scanning through them we found exactly what we dreamed of when we thought of our wedding abroad, the stunning Lady of the Rock for our romantic ceremony & then Duna Beach afterwards for our fun beach bbq wedding reception. After reading a few testimonials we decided to use Sohno a Dois as our wedding planners, which to us now was the best decision we could have made! We met Noelia and Carla within 2 months of our initial correspondence when they were over in Dublin for a wedding fair, I was a bit apprehensive as I didn't know what to expect , but they are two of the nicest friendliest people you'd ever meet! Over the 18 month period of planning the wedding we met Noelia any time she was over in Dublin (about 4 times, all in all)to go through details of the day & what we had in mind for certain aspects & we made our decisions along the way with her assistance and advice. There was also an abundance of emails back & forth ( mainly me asking a ridiculous amount of questions, but all were replied to promptly & my mind put at ease quickly)We did get over for 3 days a year before the wedding to see the venue (which were amazing) and Noelia took us off for the day to meet some suppliers while there. Now, onto the additional team members that truly made our wedding day a dream come through: We initially met Joao from Joao Photography while in portugal for the few days. I'm not exactly fond of being in front of the camera, so the thoughts of all the posing etc on my wedding day filled me with dread! But after meeting Joao I knew I would be totally at ease as he was so relaxed and easing to talk to, plus he had some beautiful natural shot albums which was the way we wanted to go for the majority of our album. Joao and his team were great on the day , in no way intrusive or demanding, and really made us & our guests so comfortable around them. We received our digital album a few days after the wedding and I cannot describe what a stunning job he did. I have never seen anything like it, the photographs are so beautiful and natural, they truly capture every aspect and emotion of the day. We used Orlando Horta as our videographer, Noelia advised that Orlando & Joao work well together on the day, so we went with her advice & we weren't disappointed! They work great together, there was no competition for shots etc & both were great fun. Even the groom (who on the run up to the wedding was a bit apprehensive about the thought of all the photo taking & videos etc) had a great laugh with them and his groomsmen the morning of the wedding doing all their shots. They really were a great team & our guests couldn't get over how nice and un-intrusive they were. The did a great job of capturing the day. A last minute decision we made a few weeks before the wedding was to get a drone camera for aerial shots of the wedding at lady of the rock & duna beach. Our guests were blown away by this & the bit of footage we've seen so far looks out of this world, I honestly cant wait to see the video. I'd just like to throw in (from experience) that if anyone is thinking of trying to save by not having photographer or videographer think seriously about it, because our day just went by so fast that a month on I still cant believe its come & gone, the only saving grace is I have our stunning photo's to look back on (which does make all the difference) and the video to look forward to. Onto my band. WOW!! Nicole & Tiago from Twin Flames were AMAZING! I had heard and considered other wedding bands from the Algarve, but decided to book Twin Flames (without seeing them) as I knew I wanted a young band with amazing voices & energy and that covered all generation of songs. My god, they were brilliant from start to finish. They did our ceremony songs beautifully, did a great mc'ing for the walk ins/speeches & had everyone up dancing (old & young ) for the night. Tiago even learnt our first dance especially , Romeo & Juliet by the Dire Straits, which is no easy task. They were brilliant, better than anything I could have imagined & all our guests loved them. They were the main suppliers we had one on one dealings with, but the flowers & set up's of the venues were also done beautifully. The staff of Duna Beach were so attentive & friendly & the food was lovely too. Anyway, the long & short of it is that this day would not have happened without the wonderful Noelia, she guided us from start to finish on every aspect of the day and advised us on what she thought would & wouldn't work for us based on our personalities and they type of wedding we wanted. They truly put a personal touch to it all and give 110%.They were there with us from the morning of the wedding to the early hours of the morning , just to ensure that everything went to plan. Even Vera from Sonho a Dois met us the next day to ensure the boat trip they had helped us organise for our guests went to plan. I can honestly say we were blessed to have them plan our wedding as they truly made our dreams come through x Thank you all so much! Lou & Anto x (I want to do it all again after writing that!)
