Welcome to our guest book. Your comments and suggestions are important to us.
Dear Taelor & Dalia Firstly apologies it has taken much longer than intended to send our review but we are sure you are in no doubt that our Wedding in October was undoubtedly the most perfect day we could ever have wished for. Family and friends are still talking about it and wish we could do it all over again, we still cannot believe how many people travelled out to celebrate our wedding on the beautiful beach of Vilamoura. When I think back, we met by chance in the church that we had set our heart on marrying in and when initially I was disappointed that it was booked, you changed that all into a positive and we never looked back. You will remember only too well that having had 10 years experience in designing wedding stationery etc. that I was not sure I really needed a Wedding Planner let alone was I going to be the easiest to work with, given my own attention to detail. However, you changed all of that after our very first meeting and I know only too well now that we could never have pulled it all together without your experience, assertiveness and full support throughout every decision we made as well as you being fluent in Portugese, a definite advantage. In the planning stage, one memory I will always have is in the florist when unfortunately we had only received the news that my step Dad who was terminally ill would be unable to make the journey to the wedding. Both you and Andrew definitely won the award for endurance that day as I had a bit of a meltdown and in the end the flowers were outstanding on the beach pergola as well as out bouquets thanks to the amazing florist that you highly recommended who did an outstanding job on both the beach and the venue at the Tivoli. If I was to offer any advise to future brides, it would be to listen to your Wedding Planner, especially when they can recommend make up that stays on all day in the heat and to trial hairdresser. On my special day when everyone thought I was keeping the groom waiting, it was actually my beautiful daughter and only bridesmaid, so upset with her hair styling on the day. Taelor's quick response and calmness turned what could have been a major crisis into a personal challenge given it was one of the warmest days in Portugal with over 80 guests waiting our arrival on the beach ... and what a result bridesmaid's tears disappeared and she was simply stunning, our very own fairy godmother to the rescue. I never at any time felt I was not in control of events and very much appreciated the regular contact throughout the planning period. The day was everything we had described to our Minister who very much appreciated the rehearsal set up and visit to the beach the night before. My friends who were both singing and reading at the ceremony again appreciated the set up arranged with our chosen band who were simple outstanding. Without a doubt I am sure we gave you more work than anticipated and I am not sure how much sleep you both had the night before the wedding but when I was able to see the beach set up with my many wooden hearts and the venue at the Tivoli it was everything we could every have hoped for and so much more. Our guests were truly impressed and all still talk about how everything flowed so well on the day, even the small details like the water barrels on the beach and all the work that went into the decoration that I had either brought with me or you had sourced on my request. So many guests have cherished pictures of the most amazing happy day for not just Andrew and I but everyone that shared our celebration on our wedding day. Your recommendation of the photographers was outstanding and we enjoyed working with Ella & Jorge so much. Your suggestion of the fireworks at the cake cutting left our guests feeling very overwhelmed and a real highlight in the evening as the sun went down. We wish you all the very best for the future of Algarve Events and will always highly recommend you. Only just booked to return to Vilamoura in May and October to reflect on the beautiful memories we have of our wonderful wedding. Thank you both so much for making it all so special, much love sent to you from us both and our family and friends who very much enjoyed your company too on the day of the wedding. Kind Regards Yvonne & Andrew Stoddart (Married 4.10.14)

Hi Dalia So sorry it has taken over 3 months to send you this message. My inbox looks very sad without all your regular emails, although I am sure you do not miss my constant queries... Brendan and I would like to express our heartfelt thanks to you for helping us plan our Algarve wedding on September 19th. The whole day went so fast that we found it hard to take everything in...looking back, we wish we could have been a guest at our wedding so we could soak it all up! We have such special memories of the day and will be forever grateful at how you managed to turn our hopes and dreams into a reality. So many of our friends and family said it was one of the best weddings they had ever been to, and it was down to your hard work and professionalism for making it such a success. We expected that living in Dublin and planning our wedding in the Algarve would be difficult but working with Algarve Events took all that worry away. All of your hard work and local knowledge was invaluable. Without your help we would have been lost! We were very lucky to have worked with most of the team - from the very beginning Taelor helped us choose our venue and secure our date, then we landed on our feet having you guide us through all the rest of the big decisions. We were also fortunate to have the help of Irina on our wedding day who was so nice and a really calming addition! We were delighted with our choice of venues, both really had the 'wow' factor we were looking for. The Igreja de São Lourenço looks absolutely amazing in our photos and it really set the tone for the day. The Tivoli Victoria is a wonderful hotel in a stunning setting. The staff were always so pleasant to deal with and the food and wine were exceptional. Many of our guests commented on this during the wedding and continue to do so since! We were very pleased with our choice of suppliers - the girls who helped transform us in the morning, the variety of musicians who entertained us throughout the day and night, the flowers and decoration from Suzannah etc - they were all brilliant. Special mention has to go to Garrett - his photos really captured the feel of our day without being too-posed, exactly what we wanted. We are really looking forward to seeing our wedding video soon. We would like to wish you and Algarve Events every success in the future, your expertise in planning weddings was clear to see from the moment we met. Should any new clients request a reference, please do not hesitate to contact us. On a personal level Dalia, we never expected to 'click' so well with our wedding planner and we considered ourselves so lucky to have had the opportunity to work with you. By the end of it, we felt as if we had made a friend for life. We really appreciated your constant patience with us and your understanding of our budget. We were confident that you worked hard on our behalf to make sure we received the best deals possible on all elements for our wedding. We are missing you and Portugal and hope it won't be too long before we are back! Best wishes Verona and Brendan Nolan x

Just wanted to thank you so very much for making our day more perfect than we could have imagined. From the 1st email right up until the day itself you were so friendly and accomodating.....even finding a hairdresser 2days before the day itself! I cannot express how grateful we are to you and your team. And if I hear of anyone planning a wedding in the Algarve ill be sure to recommend you! :) Thank you so much again! Ayesha & Dougie Corrins
