Fabio and I got married in May 2016 at Vivenda Miranda. From our initial enquiry, Noelia and the whole team at Sonho a Dois were so helpful. Before we had even signed a contract Noelia met with us in the Algarve and took us to see several venues giving us the pros and cons in her experiences with each of them. Once we had decided the venue, booked a date and secured their services, Noelia helped us arrange the details every step of the way. Most of the planning was done by email and we always got a prompt and helpful response. She recommended suppliers for everything from bands to photographers (and gave us her thoughts on any we found independently), liaised with them for us unless we wanted to talk to them directly, and nothing was ever to much trouble. For things like the cake and flowers, we just had to send her a photo of what we would like and she would give us a quote for it. It was very useful to meet her and some of the suppliers when they came to England to do a wedding fair as it helped discuss ideas, and we booked an amazing band we net there. She also arranged hair and makeup trials, menu and cake tastings, and an engagement photo shoot for us when we went to the Algarve again a couple of months before the wedding so we didn't need to worry about any arrangements. She really took so much of the stress and hassle out of wedding planning, keeping track of the budget, due dates for payments, planning the schedule for the day itself, sorting the official paperwork including translation of our documents, and coordinating everything else. On our wedding day she was on hand to sort everything out for us so we could just focus on enjoying it. She has built time into the schedule for us to relax and made sure all our guests were well looked after. She even advised us on the weather and reassured me it would all be fine (which it was, we had lovely sunshine) when we woke up to an unexpected thunderstorm! She worked with us to make sure our day was everything we wanted and we could not have asked for a better wedding planner. Thank you so much for everything, it was all perfect! The flowers and decorations week gorgeous, music was excellent, food and cake were amazing, ceremony was beautiful, and we had such a great day and everyone keeps telling us how much they enjoyed themselves. Lots of love, Juilitta and Fabio
We recently celebrated our union in Algarve by organizing a long weekend of love celebrations with family and friends (August 19-22, 2016). We live in Dubai and had done our research online for local planners in Algarve. Sonho a Dois Weddings captured my heart from the first response. From the very first interaction the team was very friendly and sweet yet professional and very responsive. When i met Noelia for the first time a month later in Algarve, I knew i was in safe hands. in the space of 2 days, we had finished the venue hunting, food tasting and supplier selection for flowers, caterers even photography. The rest was all done thru emails and video calls and she made the whole experience stress free and super enjoyable. I never thought id actually be having fun planning for a wedding celebration :) Noelia and her team managed to pull 2 outstanding non-traditional events, one by the beach with a bonfire and one in a vineyard, by translating our thoughts and wishes into concrete out of this world evenings that absolutely everyone enjoyed until the last minute. The overall organization was super smooth, quality of service impeccable and agreeable. All suppliers exceeded our expectations and i could tell it’s because of the relationship that Sonho a Dois team had built and nurtured with them. They all cared to provide the best experience to us and we felt we were surrounded by friends rather than suppliers. I also got a chance to interact with the rest of Sonho’s team, all really wonderful women, very professional, considerate and delightful to work with. Sonho a Dois weddings are not just a team of event organizers and planners. They offer personal attention with big agency results. Thanks a million Noelia and Sonho's team.. keep on shining! Loads of love
We hijacked our extended family holiday in a private villa in Carvoeiro for our wedding, the day was perfect, from the surprise for our guests (we didn't tell them until the morning of the wedding!), to the lobster on the BBQ! Everything was faultless, flowers, chairs, white carpet, hair dressers, make-up artists, photographers drone crashing into a tree (did make us laugh and I hope it was not an expensive accident!). Noelia and the team made all this happen without any fuss and to be fair to Noelia, without much help from us! The team made it very easy, from the translation of documents to getting the licence (Carlos the Registar is an offer and a gentleman!). Cant recommend Noelia and the team highly enough, if you choose them to plan your wedding our experience is you will not be disappointed! thank you so much Shelley & Ian
Stephen & I got married in August 2016 in Albufeira and I highly recommend Carla from Sonho a Dois Algarve weddings to help you plan your wedding in the Algarve! Carla is ever the professional, we simply could not have done it without her. From the paperwork, to the church, hotel, flowers, photographers, video team... the list is endless. We had the most amazing day of our lives, and everything was perfect from start to finish. Porches church was so beautiful and Sao Rafael hotel was spectacular. Our guests had a day to remember, and so many commented on Carla and her fantastic organising skills! Thank you so much for everything, Annette & Stephen
Ling and I decided on Portugal after searching the world for a unique and gorgeous wedding venue. We were hooked after visiting the Algarve and seeing the small quaint white washed villages, fantastic small sandy coves and amazing unspoilt coastline and cliffs. We contacted a few planners but had an immediate affinity towards Sandra and Sonho a Dois. After meeting Sandra we knew we could start to relax knowing our dream was in good hands. Great communication and Sandra was always at the end of a phone for those moments of fear when you think you've forgotten something but actually, Sandra had it will in hand. In fact, having seen quite a few venues over several days we fell immediately in love with Alba Suites, only to be told there was no availability for out chosen dates - gutted! However, Sandra took up our case and spoke to the resort management. She knew we had set our hearts on the resort and after a few nervous minutes and several calls Sandra had somehow convinced the resort to let us have the date we wanted and for the resort to plan around us. It is accurate to say that without Sandra's intervention we would not have had our dream wedding venue. Nothing was too much trouble for Sonho a Dois and we felt looked after all the way through the planning, our visit to sort out the 'legals' and all through the wedding day. Sandra took on many roles, coordinated our photographers and musician and the resort staff to ensure we were as relaxed as possible. We wanted an intimate family and close friends wedding with a few personal touches of decoration and quiet music. We got much more and our expectations were exceeded. We have no hesitation in not only recommending Sonho a Dois to plan your wedding on the Algarve but would also place them well ahead of the other multiple planners that we meet and spent time with. All our family and close friends were highly delighted with our day and our huge thanks go to Sonto a Dois and especially Sandra,who we now consider one of our dear friends.
