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 :)
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
