Thank you Paula & Karina
We got engaged on 27.01.2017 and were married in beautiful Tavira on 07.10.2017, so it was a relatively quick turnaround and there was no way in the world this would have been possible without Paula & Karina and the amazing team at Algarve Wedding Planners – simply the best at planning and organising our dream wedding.
We choose to travel to the Algarve to get married as Kevin’s parents have a home in Vilamoura so we travel there to holiday a couple of times a year – our home away from home
We had friends who had travelled to the beautiful Algarve to get married and based on their recommendations there was no hesitation that the best decision we would make to ensure we had the wedding of our dreams was to go with Paula and her team to plan our wedding each step of the way.
As we were keen to get moving and unable to travel to the Algarve until April of that year I worked very closely with Paula detailing what we would like for our wedding day, she sent us on a number of available options and while all were beautiful we instantly fell in love with Tavira, I was so impressed with Paula and how she had singled out our dream wedding destination for us without having even met us, this was all based on phone calls and emails and she also very kindly did many video calls showing me the area in real life to get a better feel for what it was truly like. We decided on a church and venue in Tavira, Paula’s opinions and advise was invaluable for us at this time.
We finally got to travel to travel to Vilamoura in April and I was so excited to meet Paula and the team and get to see Tavira and our church and venue we had chosen, meeting with Paula made us even more excited and so at ease with everything. On this trip we also got to do our food tasting, and I also had my hair and makeup trail all of which was recommended and organised by Paula and Valerie, we were beyond happy with everything and so thrilled at how easy everything. We also got to meet with Karina whose eye for style and attention to detail was just fantastic, we were pretty laid back about the overall décor and style and once we got to sit and discuss through ideas with Karina of what we liked she instantly developed a look and style for our wedding day that suited our taste perfectly.
This was our one and only trip to the Algarve to plan the wedding.
I travelled to Galway in July to meet with Paula and the team but this was more to touch base and catch up as we felt so happy and confident that every detail was already well in place.
Three weeks before our own wedding we travelled to Portugal for friends wedding which Paula was also organising so this was another wonderful opportunity to meet and catch up, being a guest at the wedding and seeing how relaxed our friends were and how professional and smoothly everything ran – made us so excited for our own day and we had a great confidence for our own big day!
When we arrived in October for our own wedding we were pleasantly surprised with how little there was for us to do Paula and Karina had everything covered, thought of and planned to perfection – all there was for us to do was enjoy this special time with our families and friends!
The day itself was so enjoyable and relaxed from start to finish – we literally had the best day of our lives. Paula and Karina went above and beyond to ensure that everything was just as we had hoped and wish for – it was the most perfect day! All our guests were so impressed with every part of the wedding and how amazing the day was from start to finish.
We cannot recommend Algarve Wedding Planners highly enough for creating and planning the wedding day of our dreams which we will cherish the memories of forever. We feel very fortunate to have had Paula and the team at AWP plan our special day for us and we most certainly have made a friend for life with Paula – this lady is so professional yet her fun and caring nature makes her an absolute joy to work with, she has an amazing way of setting you at ease and is so genuine, she treats planning your wedding as if it were her very own – simply amazing!
We cannot thank you enough, you guys are simply the best – The Dream Team!
All our love,
Sinead & Kevin xxx
