22nd September 2017 13:14We had enquired with several other planners for quotations and done extensive research and came across Sonho a Dois Algrave wedding planners. We felt the team provided the most immediate and informative response. We also felt they offered a very fair and responsible price in comparison. As bride getting married abroad I had hundreds of questions and without fail I received replies to every one of my emails without ever having to chase. You put a huge amount of trust in a planner to organise your big day and with Sonho a Dois we felt 100% trust and reliability. Sonho a Dois gave us so many options for the wedding venue, flowers, photographer, music etc etc. We even sent a few of our own photos that the girls were happy to make happen. The team are all so friendly we felt like we became true friends. On the big day Sandra was there organising the guests and staff. We felt that she did this perfectly, everyone knew their place and where they needed to be. Everything went to plan and was even better than we could have imagined it to be. Since the wedding we have had several lovely comments from our guests about Sandra. Carla was there as our translator, she was also lovely and helped me quietly calm my nerves when she saw me tearing up during the ceremony. The flowers were beautiful and very good quality. I had asked for peonies that only flower in spring for a wedding in September and although they said this may not be possible I got peonies in all the bouquets. The flowers lasted all day without wilting in the heat. I even kept them in vases for the remainder of the holiday. The bridal makeup artist was fantastic, had loads of branded makeup and had years of experience in England and Portugal. The bridal hair stylist was amazing, I showed her one picture and within half hour she had done it better than I could have imagined. I had trials beforehand just incase but I don't think that was necessary they both did a great job. I felt like a princess and couldn’t believe it was me in the mirror! They were clearly professionals who had years of experience and training. The photographers were fantastic, they knew exactly what they were doing and guided us all the way. We got to review the photos so quickly and really pleased with the results. We cannot thank Sandra and the girls enough for all their hard work, endless emails and professional attitude we received throughout the last 11months. You have made all our dreams come true and outlived all our expectations. We highly recommend this company to all my friends and family and do not have a bad word to say about them.
