Wow Wow Wow!!!! We first found out about Sonho Adois by a chance google search and that was where our journey began. From the first moment we met this wonderful lady Noelia we knew they were going to create something special. After a year of bouncing emails back and forth to plan the best day of our lives the unthinkable happened. The venue Sao Rafael Atlantico we'd originally booked with had some unforeseen circumstances and could no longer honour our booking. We had 6 weeks to start our search to find a new venue. We made the conscious decision to go back out to Portugal to view the potential new venues. We made plans to meet Noelia and she kindly picked us up from the hotel we were staying in and took us around to view the available venues for our wedding date that she recommended. We looked at several other hotels and our original venue but Noelia asked us to view one more venue which was a private custom built venue called Monte Das Oliveiras. The second we entered we looked at each other and knew this was it. The question we had for Noelia was how on earth were we going to plan a wedding in four weeks?!? She just smiled and told us not to worry, just give her the information she needed and she’d do the rest. Oh boy did she!! The day came, everything was set the panic starts to kick in, is everything in the right place? Will the day run to plan? We can honestly say we’ve never met anyone with the level of attention to detail as this incredible team and in particular Noelia, our guests have made comments since returning home that they thought it was like a Hollywood wedding. What she created for us wasn’t just another wedding to her, every single wedding she organises she treats it with the love and care as if it was her own and it really shows. Thank you Noelia, we wish we could do it all over again! Our wedding was on the 15th September 2018 at Monte Das Oliveiras, on that day Cinderella really did get to marry her prince.
We found Sonho a Dois through google.co.uk, as we decided to get married in the Algarve in Portugal (for many reasons) and we had no idea where to start. We researched various wedding planners available in the Algarve and our hearts were drawn to Sonho a Dois straight away. I can’t explain, we just had a good feeling from the first look at their website and reading through what they do. I cannot praise them enough. The first contact I had with them was so reassuring and friendly… not a hard sales approach at all. They genuinely care about their brides (and grooms!) and making your dream come true. They work so hard to get to know your vision to make it happen on the day. They work tirelessly, throughout all hours to ensure you have the perfect wedding day. Every single one of the ladies is so lovely. We had the pleasure of not only working with Carla initially, but then we had Sandra take over our profile (Super Sandra we call her!). She is friendly, understanding and patient. They are also very organised and on the ball with every little detail – if you have forgotten something they will be sure to remember it! We were lucky enough to visit the team when they came to Manchester on their annual wedding show. It is such a great idea; they come to the UK and bring with them not only their knowledge, but some of their suppliers too. This is where we got to meet the amazing florist, the talented DJ Tiggy as well as the hairdresser & make-up artist. Not only that, we had such a warm and friendly welcome from them we now call them our friends. They will organise all of your paperwork and arrange appointments for you so you can have the peace of mind you need for your day. After the big day, they are genuinely happy for you as well. Having used them for our wedding at the Monte Da Quinta resort on the 27th September 2018, I could not recommend them enough. I know everyone says this, but our wedding day was the BEST.DAY.EVER! We cannot thank you enough for all that you have done.
We were married on the 9th of September 2018 in Monte Das Oliveiras (a beautiful venue just outside Albuifeira), the day itself was far past our expectations. Noélia was the main reason for this, all of the smaller details that might have you stressed were all kindly looked after in the background so you could enjoy the day without any distractions. From the day we met Noelia a year prior, she drove us around venues that we had looked up online, at the end she asked us to have a look at the final venue on her recommendation and she was correct in stating it was amazing. From here recommendation on the venue, the band, the food, the photographers, make up/hair and the DJ were all 5 stars. We built a level of trust with Noelia that anything she recommended we just said yes (obviously within budget), she has obviously been in this game for a long time and her experience reaps dividends. Everyone one of our guests mentioned to us how much work Noelia was doing in the background to make sure every detail was adhered to, we were gifted with the best day of our life thanks to Noelia and the Sonho a Dois team and we cannot thank her and them enough. If you were considering getting married in the Algarve I would not even consider anyone else Danielle and Ciaran
Myself and Dan would like to thank Carla and the team at Sonho a Dois for helping to make our day not only beautiful, but also for making it run like clockwork! From the moment we met Carla we were both really impressed! Not only with her warm personality and charm but also the fact she was very comfortable with taking control and helping guide is in the areas we were less sure about. I don't think myself or my husband really realised how difficult it can be to coordinate a wedding abroad and we genuinely could not have done it without Carla's continued help and support throughout the process. In the last few months we spoke almost daily and she always responded quickly even when she was on her days off. The suppliers she introduced us to were perfect and fit exactly the style and standard we had hoped for when planning the day. She guided us through all of the legal aspects including taking us to the registry office prior to the day to ensure all was official. This was a god send as I am not sure our Portuguese would have got us through that bit!! The day itself was spectacular and Carla was there from first thing in the morning until later at night ensuring all suppliers and organisation were managed with military precision to ensure we could focus on getting ready for the main event. I am not sure there are enough superlatives to really sum up what we thought of Carla but I am certain we couldn't have done it without her. I looked at a couple of other wedding planning service providers in the Algarve before we chose Sonho a Dois and its definitely the best decision we made! 10/10!! Our guests are still talking about how incredible the flowers and food were and the registrar absolutely made the day for us. Thank you all and especially Carla xxx
We would like to thank Noelia and her amazing team for our perfect wedding day! Noélia could not have been more attentive or helpful if she tried. She was there for us no matter what time of day on the lead up to our wedding. We met Noelia and her team in Manchester and were so glad we chose them. We would give them a rating of 101/100!! And on our day, Noelia was completely professional and kept the day running like clock work :) Everything was simply perfect. We still look at our pictures and re-live this magical day over and over, to which would not be possible with out Sonho a Dois :-) THANK YOU. Love Mr & Mrs P x
