These girls are Angels!! We would whole-heartedly recommend them to anyone considering having wedding abroad. We have been spreading the word back in Edinburgh to anyone that will listen! We had so much fun in planning our wedding in the 5 months and 25 days it took us to get all our ideas together to make our 'dream wedding' a reality!! From the initial contact with Noelia ('you really mean JUNE 2013!!') we were struck by the professionalism, patience and passion of the Sonho A Dois ladies! We were also lucky enough to have an initial meeting back home when Noelia was here for a wedding fair, which was really enjoyable and helped us to put a face to the emails! What a thing to plan a wedding an d make lovely new friends:) On the day itself Noelia and Vera were on hand to from Dawn to Dusk overseeing the smooth running of every part of the day. Their attention to detail is extraordinary.. We have no doubt that the suppliers that were recommended were first class. This took the stress out of the planning process and just allowed us to really enjoy it all. Our Photographers Ana & Fernando from Yes I Do particularly deserve a mention. I have heard a lot of Bride & Grooms say they found the photographs a stressful part of the day. But with this duo-it was a pleasure. Many of our guests also enjoyed the spectacle- when they weren't too busy being wowed by the amazing backdrop of Senhora de la Rocha- WOW!! Although do get a mic- the waves were loud.. This said, the place is achingly beautiful.. and reminiscent of some locations seen on our travels much further afield.. with the bonus of been accessible for friends and family. Dora and Andrea who did our hair and make up- were exceptional as was our lovely Florist, DJ Tiggy, Orlando, Alba Villas & their amazing chefs(... this list could really go on and o which I fear I have done already..... So I will stop here and encourage you just to contact these ladies and find out for yourselves!! Enjoy every second.... We certainly Did! Thank you Noelia, Vera and Carla for giving us and our guests memories that will last a lifetime. Now when can we pencil in that renewal of vows.....?! Carolyne & Kevin x x
We were first introduced to Sonho a Dois via Planet Holidays. We saw a hotel in their brochure & made arrangements to visit in July 2012. Carla met us at our hotel & spent the afternoon showing us venues in the Algarve. Carla was very honest & admitted that the hotel we had picked was potentially going to be taken off their books due to a decline in the level of service. Needless to say we were very disappointed! But Carla had a few tricks up her sleeve & we were wowed by The Lake Resort. We could not have picked a better venue. It was perfect for our small party of 25. When we got back to England, Carla had already sent the quote & soon after we booked & paid the deposit. 12 months of emails ensued with Carla guiding us through everything from hair, flowers &cakes to all the legalities. She was an absolute star! Without her I don't think we would be legally married but she guided us through every step in her professional & friendly manner. Fast forward to June 2013. We spent one morning of our holiday with Carla finalising all the details, meetings with the registrar, photographers & the hotel co-ordinator Vitor who was absolutely fantastic. We also had our menu tasting & the food was absolutely stunning. The wedding day - All Carla's hard work certainly paid off. The colour of the flowers & drapes for the gazebo were an exact match to the picture of the bridesmaid dresses I had sent Carla months earlier. The venue looked fantastic with all the table decorations I had left in Carla's capable hands. The music provided by DJ Tiggy was fantastic. Walking into the restaurant to Black Eyed Pea's, Tonight's Gonna Be a Good Night was brilliant. All of our guests song choices were played & there was always someone on the dance floor, amazing considering there ended up being 21 in our party! Our photographers Ana & Fernando did a great job. We felt relaxed & didn't feel that we were being photographed for hours or that we had been kept away from our guests for too long. We have previewed some of our photos & they are fantastic. Can't wait for the full set! Sonho a Dois certainly have some fantastic suppliers & their recommendations should be trusted 100%. The attention to detail was second to none. Everything was perfect. Thanks a million.
Myself and my husband are just back from our amazing wedding in Vila Vita Parc on the 24th of May. We both fully agree the reason it was so fantastic was down to the expertise of Sonho a Dois and especially Carla who has now become a close friend. From everything to venue and cake selection she was on hand to help and guide us. We really cannot thank them enough for making the day run so smoothly. Carla was there for the full day of the wedding and her help and guidance was invaluable. Vera was also fantastic in making sure all our guests got home ok. Prior to the wedding day we must have exchanged 100’s of email which were always answered so promptly with time and effort given to each question we had. Carla made us feel like we were the only couple she was organising a wedding for! Sonho a Dois have a fantastic team of suppliers who were all top class. During both our visits to Portugal Carla picked us up and brought us wherever we needed to go which was fantastic. I honestly cannot recommend Carla and the team at Sonho enough, they play such a key part in your wedding abroad and we could not have done it without them, so again – Thank You!
I want to thank you again for making our day so special! From our first visit to you in may last year to my visit again in October. You were extremely patient and nothing was too much trouble. Really appreciated you chauffeuring us about. When we finally decided upon the Castro it was all systems go! You were always very prompt with emails given your very hectic schedule! Your selection of suppliers was great and we had plenty to choose from. This made budgeting much simpler and I have to say that we didn't really spend beyond our budget which is a miracle! You were always very clear on the costing of items so there was no surprises. I would wholeheartedly recommend your services to anyone thinking of getting married on the Algarve. It certainly took the pain out of it for us and as I'm not your typical bridezilla the guidance you gave me was great! I hope to see you again some time, Debs and damien x
We want to thank Carla and Sonho a dois for all their hard work and effort that went into making our wedding day 5.5.13 everything we wanted it to be. We flew out to the algarve in December'12 for viewings and then once more before the wedding to attend meetings and food tasting. Lots to do in four months but easily done with their expert guidance. Carla spent long days with us driving us around the algarve but we never felt rushed at all. She was always so patient with us. All our ideas, suggestions, questions and queries were always answered promptly by email. We were made to feel like we were the only couple they were dealing with. Mr Antonio's catering was fantastic and all of our guests raved about the food. Daddy jack band were amazing. To hold your ceremony on a beach with the sun shining was a dream come true. I'm sure it wont be long before we come back out again for a visit. Muita obrigada. Helen & Norbert.
