Wow - what can I say? Only that if you are getting married in the Algarve don’t do another single thing until you book Sonho a Dois! They are beyond AMAZING! We are still on cloud nine three weeks after our most amazing day (or days as Noelia not only organised our wedding but also our pre drinks reception and Day 2 barbecue). All of our guests are raving about all 3 events. Our journey with Sonho a Dois began back in 2016 when they were recommended to me by a colleague who had attended a wedding organised by them. When I told him we were considering getting married in Portugal he wrote the name ‘Sonho a Dois’ on a post it and told me to book them immediately! The same gentleman has pretty exacting standards so I knew if they were getting such an emphatic thumbs up from him that they must be good! And so it began! We flew to the Algarve and met the lovely Carla who patiently showed us venue after venue until we hit on The One (or so we thought!). After provisionally booking a date for 2017 we then changed our minds and decided to postpone the wedding as we were buying a house. Carla was so understanding of our decision. Fast forward to 2018 and we were ready to go again and so we got back in contact with the guys in Sonho and this time the amazing Noelia was our planner. The venue we had initially chosen was suddenly less accommodating to what we wanted and so Noelia suggested a new venue to us that had come on the market since we had last visited – Monte das Oliveiras. When she said she thought we would love it she wasn’t wrong! It is simply magnificent! We met with Noelia in person in Dublin, and on zoom and then we flew out to Portugal in early 2020 to finalise everything and it was all systems go for our wedding date in October 2020. Until Covid came along and once again we had to postpone! It must have been an incredibly stressful time for Noelia and the guys in Sonho and everyone in the industry but Noelia never let us see that. She was the epitome of calm and somehow managed to move our wedding to the same date this year without us having to change or lose a single supplier. In the run up to the wedding this year she was just amazing – giving me a push when I needed it to make decisions, accommodating my MANY requests, patiently answering all my questions and just being so calm and lovely throughout the whole process. The day itself was just out of this world – the venue Monte das Oliveiras is fabulous – the staff were amazing and the food was just incredible – we had a fully vegan menu and it is testament to the chefs that all of our guests (mostly non vegan!) absolutely loved it. The decor, flowers and bouquets from Oura Flores were all simply stunning. Our car from Vintage Cars was a hit with everyone. Our lovely celebrant Guillaume made the ceremony so special. Our guests are still raving about the amazing entertainment from Glam Duo, Nicole Silver Band, DJ Dhanny and Mr Sax, and our dancefloor and selfie mirror from Memory Box. The dancefloor was full all night! Our photographer Marco Torre and videographer Alex from Algarve Films were fantastic, such lovely guys who went over and above to document our great memories of the day. Chloe Davis and Joanna from Jar Studios did a brilliant job on the hair and makeup. It was a wonderful day from start to finish. The guys from Monte das Oliveiras also catered our barbecue at our villa the next day and DJ Dhanny played again for us. All of our guests said it was so good it was like another wedding! We held our pre drinks reception the night before at Castello di Norcia, another beautiful venue with great food. We had the most magical time and our guests can’t stop talking about what an amazing experience it was for them too. I can’t stress enough how this was all down to Noelia’s hard work – she is just amazing! Nothing is too much trouble, there is no problem she can’t solve and she is just the loveliest person. So if you are thinking of getting married in the Algarve just go ahead and book Sonho a Dois – you will be in the best hands and they will make sure your special day is out of this world! Thank you guys so much for everything

From the first day we met Carla in Citywest Co Dublin at there wedding fair we new she has to be our wedding planner. And I tell you Carla did not disappoint. Our wedding had to be postponed twice due to travel restrictions and each time we had to plan the wedding again and again but to have the support of Carla made the stressful times a lot easier. No matter if it was morning / noon or night we could email, wattsapp or FaceTime and always get a response to any question or worry. Carla went above and beyond for us and we can’t thank her enough for making our dream wedding come true. Xxx

Nous avons rencontré Carla en septembre 2019. Carla a été tout simplement notre bonne fée pour notre mariage qu'elle a rendu magique. Nous lui avons fait confiance à 100% du début à la fin depuis la Suisse. Malgré le covid, Carla nous a fait vivre un rêve éveillé. Son expérience, son réseau de prestataires, son charisme, sa sympathie, sa sensibilité et son calme. Carla est une weeding planner exceptionnelle que nous recommandons les yeux fermés. Elle a su nous comprendre, nous rassurer au bon moment, nous mettre en confiance et nous proposer exactement ce qui nous ressemblait pour ce jour si unique. Nous avons du changer d'hôtel à 3 semaines du mariage à cause du covid, mais Carla a su trouver en 24h notre petit bonheur. Nous avons pu nous marier dans un lieux paradisiaque, magique de l'Algarve. Notre mariage est gravé dans nos cœurs et celui de nos invités qui sont restés épaté par une organisation parfaite. Carla nous n'avons pas de mots à la hauteur pour t'exprimer nos remerciements pour tout ce que tu as fait pour rendre notre journée aussi magique tant pour l'organisation de toute la journée et la soirée ainsi que la déco.

From the moment we contacted Sonho a Dois in 2018 we never looked back as we knew they’d be the ones to make our dreams come true. Carla was so patient with us, and would always come back to us so quickly on things. We had to postpone our wedding twice due to covid but Carla, her team and the wonderful suppliers they work with were able to rearrange everything so quickly. Our wedding day was perfect and we couldn’t have done it without Carla.

We both just want to say a huge thank you to Carla and her team at Sonho a Dois. We met Carla back in 2019 at a wedding fare local to where we live. Carla was so warm and friendly in her aura that we connected with her straight away. She listened to what was in our minds, our vision, and honestly having now had the best day of our lives we couldn’t have had this without her. Given also the global pandemic of the last 18 months, we believe this even more so now. Carla’s patience, and caring nature to help helped us to build very quickly a relationship in which we felt very supported and looked after by her. She not only supported us both from a planning perspective but also emotionally by keeping us updated on the changing circumstances for weddings in Portugal- we couldn’t be more grateful to her service she provided but also the personal touch she gave us in the connection we formed getting to know one another over the time we spent planning our wedding. We feel we’ve made a friend for life with Carla, and we will be forever grateful to her for making our day go according to plan, but also working with our suppliers to bring our vision to life. And looking back, some people have asked me would you go through it again given all the stress you’ve had, and we’d say absolutely, but not without Carla there by our side as we honestly hand on our hearts couldn’t think of a better person by our side helping us get ready for our special day! An incredibly lady with a true passion for helping your dreams become a reality!
