I honestly cannot recommend Sonho A Dois more highly! If it wasnt for Noelia & Carla i dont think we could have had our dream wedding. They were absolutely AMAZING from start to finish. When we decided on Portugal as a wedding destination back last year (2011) and i did not know where to start. I came across this website and contacted the ladies and it was the best move i made! They sent us a list of different venues to suit our taste and we then organised a trip out to Portugal to meet them and visit the venues. When we met with Noelia & Carla in Portugal they were both lovely, very friendly and open. They spent the entire day with us driving us from venue to venue before even asking for a penny of our money! We must have spent 8-10 hours with them looking at Venues. The Venue we decided on was Vila Vita PARC and what a choice! It was AMAZING - OUT OF THIS WORLD! They treat you like you are a star and could not have been more attentive and perfect! From this point on, Noelia & Carla were in constant contact suggesting everything we needed to think about from Flowers to Favours to Music - they literally covered everything we had to worry about and did it wonderfully. We flew out to Portugal for the week with 61 of our Guests and Noelia did not stop helping us. She took us to visit the florist, the registrars office (and beforehand explained everything we needed to do in simple terms!) we met the photographers and even got to do the food tasting of the entire menu at the Venue in Vila Vita PARC. Noelia even helped arrange a Pre-Wedding BBQ at a wonderful Golf Course 'Balaia Golf Village' which was incredible! All of our Guests were well impressed and thought that it was the start of the wedding with the wonderful views and food we were served! It was fabulous! Then the wedding Day came and Noelia & Carla could not have done more for us. Noelia honestly covered everything you can think of, she was back and forth the hotel where the lads were getting ready and Vila Vita PARC where we were given a huge room to get ready at. She made sure that everything was perfect. So many of our Guests commented on how AMAZING NOELIA was and how her attention to detail was second to none! She stayed at the Venue the entire day until the last Guests left early hours in the morning - this really was the best service we've ever had. Vila Vita PARC also exceeded our expectations in so many ways! Their attention to detail and attentiveness was incredible. It is the most outstanding venue we've ever seen! Words can't describe how incredible it was. They didnt let a glass get empty the entire day - the food was world class, the staff there were amazing and the venue itself was just breathtaking. I couldnt have asked for anymore from Sonho A Dois - they made us feel comfortable, relaxed and helped us celebrate the best day ever! All of our Guests are still talking about the wedding and how wonderful it was. They all agreed it was the best wedding they have ever been too and out of this world! We want to say a MASSIVE THANK YOU to Noelia & Carla for a wonderful job and please if you are thinking of getting married in Portugal DO NOT HESITATE TO USE SONHO A DOIS - I can guarentee you will not be disappointed!
Carla & Noelia , what can I say , words cannot describe how wonderful you were during our wedding planning and celebrations. Carla you were our rock , and you have to be the most patient lady on the planet!! You were so professional in every way and are clearly passionate about your job. In the weeks coming up to our wedding it was so nice not to be bombarded with stressfull calls and emails from suppliers. It meant that we could totally chill out and relax knowing everything was in Carla's capable hands in the run up to the wedding. On the day itself were able to enjoy every aspect of our big day and relax knowing that Sonho a Dois were on hand to ensure the smooth running of the event. And it really was smooth - everything flowed so well and Carla was like a little beaver in the backround making sure everything went as planned. We simply could not have achieved what we wanted without Carla and Noelia's hard work. What a fantastic way to start married life, totally stress free and happy! Thank you both from the bottom of our hearts , you were truly amazing and we will never forget what a huge brilliant impact you had during such a special time in our lives. Mr and Mrs Durkin x x
Noelia & Carla, we can't thank you enough for helping to make our big day so special and flawless. As a self confessed control freak it was difficult at first to hand over to the professionals but I am so glad I did. Our day was just perfect! You took away all the stresses of the day and we had just the most magical time. All our guests were amazed at the details, the venue set up and the venue itself, the professional and friendly staff and most of all the 2 of you for making the day flow so well. We have already been told that the majority of our guests will be visiting the Algarve again, as the place is just breathtaking. I have to say a special thank you also for always answering my incessant questions with such politeness, professionalism and friendliness. You should be re-named fairy godmothers, as you worked your magic. It almost feels like a dream and I have only been a married lady for a month now. We do have our amazing photographs though and we will never forget all the help you gave us. Best of luck to all your future Brides and Grooms, hope their days are as wonderful as ours xx
If your thinking of getting married in Portugal the only two names you need to know are Noelia & Carla, if i was to describe these two ladies in one word it would be AMAZING!! My now wife put me in charge of sorting the wedding (thanks)i was like a fish out of water and i was strugglin to make this the most memorable day of her life. I found Sonho a Dois on the internet and as soon as we made contact i started to realise it could be possible, i sent them over ideas of what we were looking for out of the wedding and the venue and then they sent us back many different suggestions. We meet Noelia & Carla on our first site visit and they were as friendly in person as they were thru email, there enthusiasm for weddings was electric, and they kept throwing different ideas at us which really helped focus on what we wanted, and we picked the most perfect venue. Then came the dreaded legal side of things, but they explained everything in the finest of detail which made it easy for even me to understand. We went over again a few months before the wedding and they took us to the consulate and the council buildings to sort everything out so we didnt have to be worried about it when we came over for the wedding, also on the same visit we sorted out the flowers, music, cake and all the other bits and bobs that make a wedding. Then it was time for the wedding, they had dealt with all 63 of our guests booking them into the venue all for different durations with different requiremnts, which really took the pressure off ourselves. They had arranged for us all to go to a pre wedding BBQ on the Friday night which was fantastic. On the wedding day Noelia took total control, Laura was relaxing with her friends whilst i was playing football on the beach with the lads, it couldnt of been a more relaxing morning before the wedding. As i came back up to the Hotel i could see it all coming together, it looked fantastic, and if Noelia wants something doing or wants the hotel to change the way something looks it gets done simple as that! And everything from there just got better and better, the ceremony, the meal and the amazing party were mind blowing. Our guests kept coming over to me to say they had the best time of there lives, better than there own weddings and congratulating me on putting it all together, my reply to them was that i had hardly done anything as everything they had seen and experienced was down to Noelia & Carla, it literally wouldnt have been possible with out them, i cant sing there praises enough! So i would just like to take this opportunity to thank Noelia & Carla and everybody else who was involved in making the 23-06-12 the best day of our lives!!! Thanks.
RWhen we decided to get married in portugal we contacted a few wedding planner, not many replied or not very quickly but carla got back to us immediately and asked us to explain our dream day, she got back to us quickly with some amazing ideas and venues, its was then our decision was made sonho a dois will be the only wedding planners for us! We decided on duna beach club on meia praia beach as we had been there before and wanted our wedding to be barefoot in the sand!! They were nothing but accomodating and help us through every stage especially the paperwork, which we found confusing but with carla's step by step emails it was easy. On the day carla was there to make sure it all ran smoothly and we had the most amazingly perfect day! So thank you again sonho a dois for making it so special. Adie and colleen 1st june 2012
