“Claudia and her team are the best! They were all so easy and laid back to work with – through all the chaos of COVID and date changes as well – and created the most special day for us and all of our family + friends. They truly went above and beyond! Everything was perfect – from the lighting, to the rest of the décor, flowers, food and DJ. We would do it all again! Highly recommend working with Algarve Dream Weddings.”
Eleonore & Josh
“What a amazing small business with wonderful people behind it! Was supposed to get married in Portugal last year but due to COVID we had to postpone it till next year (2023) With Claudia and her team it was so easy and manageable to do so! Cannot express how much we are looking forward to see the end result, as until now, everything has been magnificent! Customer service and satisfaction is definitely worth my 5 stars.”
Jose & Leila
“We had the best time planning our wedding thanks to Algarve Dream Weddings, Claudia and the team! Thank you so much for everything you did. From taking over our wedding, partly planned by another planner who let us down mid-COVID, to the most special day we had on June 29th, every step of the process was so easy and relaxed. Emails were responded to quickly, our suppliers all knew where they needed to be and what time etc, and the decorations were just gorgeous (even if the wind wreaked havoc during the ceremony!) We wouldn’t hesitate to recommend! Thank you all for the best day of our lives.”
Abby & Ben
“Our wedding was the most perfect day and this is all thanks to Cláudia and her team! The minute we met Cláudia, we felt relaxed and all the stress was taken away from us! She made us feel excited about our wedding and we felt stress free on the day. For personal reasons, we had to change our date, but this was never an issue for Cláudia. She answered our concerns out of hours and she was always there for us throughout the whole process. Cláudia has a huge heart, she is a very kind and considerate + an incredibly passionate wedding and event planner. She listened to exactly what we wanted to made sure to deliver + she even had some amazing surprises for us on the big day too! Cláudia is a very special person and we will never forget what an amazing day we had and that’s all thanks to her from the bottom of our hearts- thank you! Lots of love and hope to see you again soon.”
Emma & Steve
“Amazing – Claudia and Cassandra were so good from start to finish, the only complaint is I wish we could do it all over again.”

“Dream Weddings doesn’t begin to describe it. From the first meeting with Claudia, we knew we were in good hands. She was a unique mix of being all about business, but still making us feel special. There was countless back-and-forth via email and phone in the 18 months of planning for this big day. Oh boy did she deliver. Claudia and her team were amazing. The venue looked incredible, her staff were attentive and helpful. I’m not exactly sure when she sleeps as we would receive responses to our emails so quickly, despite the time difference. My new wife and I could not be happier with how everything went. Claudia took our vision, and made it a reality. I guess dreams really can come true! The only reason that I wouldn’t recommend this team, is that I wouldn’t want anyone else’s wedding to be as amazing as mine! Thank you to the whole team for all of the amazing work and tireless effort you put into making this day so special for us, and everyone who was there.????”
Hayley & Daniel
“Awww Claudia, where do we even start … BEST DAY EVER … that’s coming from me, Shannen and every guest. You’ve made it easy and fun since the beginning and I think we and your team pulled off the dream. Thank you’s don’t even cover it,. Algarve Dream Weddings are just amazing. We met Claudia on a visit to Portugal last year and straight away knew we had found the perfect person to plan our big day. Claudia is professional, full of ideas and will always go the extra mile. Me and my now wife wanted a wedding day that was not only special to us but a day that our guests would remember forever, we wanted to put on a show. What ever idea we put forward, regardless of how crazy some may have been, Claudia made it happen. I quote “I’ll never go to a wedding like that again in my life” which means we achieved what we had set out to do. We can’t thank Claudia, her team and her suppliers enough. Our thank you spreads to the photographers, videographers, caterers, venue, DJ, sax, cake supplier and everyone else who had an input in our big day. We met a wedding planner and left Portugal with a friend. Thanks for everything And … what can we plan next?”
Shannen & Nathan
“BEST WEDDING PLANNER EVER !!! ???????????????????????????? My husband and I had several ideas for our marriage, and as soon as we met Claudia we felt like we were at home, that she understood and told us exactly what our tastes were. After months of sharing those visions and feeling that we were always in tune it was really fantastic what Cláudia and her fantastic team managed to provide us. We had exactly everything we imagined, even better! exceeded all our expectations !! It was all wonderful, the decor was beautiful, beautiful, we loved it and we have had fantastic feedback from our guests. We certainly had the wedding of our dreams and we could not be happier. Thank you very much Claudia for everything, you have been our support, all attention and patience in every detail, you are a dear and we have a great affection for you and the whole team !! We wish the greatest success and happiness, undoubtedly deserving, a great kiss. Mr & Mrs Xuxu ????????”

“There are not enough words to express how thankful we are for everything you have done for our special day! From start to finish, Algarve Dream Weddings were there to support our crazy ideas (even when we did ask them to plan a wedding in 5 months). Our special day was nothing less than perfect! Claudia and all the team were constantly on board and made us feel like our day was as special as the next couple’s. Thank you for helping us create our dream wedding and for allowing us to be able to look back on all the memories with huge smiles on our faces. Everything from the personal touches, the beautiful venue, the decor, the crazy fun atmosphere and all your amazing suggestions … we couldn’t have done it without you all! Our guests still to this day talk about the wedding and how amazing it was and it was all thanks to you! We were able to share our special connection with Portugal with our friends and family and are lucky enough to be able to relive it every year. Thank you for throwing one hell of a wedding and sharing our special day with us – you will never know how much it meant to us.”
Danielle & John
“Claudia not only created the dream we had in mind for our wedding, she made it even better. First of all, she is a very friendly, caring and fun person. After just one skype call, she understood exactly our wishes and ideas we had in mind. She is hands-on, pro-active, fair and practical. We never had to ask twice about anything, she took care of it all. No challenge was too big, Claudia made it happen. Very quickly we noticed all the experience and knowledge she has. She is also transparent and honest. Next to this, she will make sure you get the best quality for the best and reasonable price. If she can make it happen she will, if she said no it is really not possible or not a good idea. She has a lot of feeling for design and details. She worked extremely hard to make sure everything was exactly like we wished for. As said, our wedding was even better, more beautiful and better organized than we hoped. The suppliers and our bridal team were very happy to work with her. Claudia is not the person that is just organising a wedding, she puts her passion, dedication and hard work in it to make sure it will be your dream wedding.”
Renée & Ward
“What can I say….. you guys are AWESOME! I cannot thank you enough for doing such a wonderful job with planning our wedding, and making it so so fun. We enjoyed every single minute, and I was so relaxed knowing that I had such hard working professionals taking care of everything for us. All the guests were blown away by the beautiful venue, the delicious food, and how smoothly the whole day went. Thank you for everything you did for us, all the great suggestions, and for indulging us in our silliness! It was so relaxed and fun, just what we wanted. We will surely be back in Praia Da Luz to relive the unforgettable memories which were made. I hope I’ll be back even sooner for another wedding, my friends were very impressed, you did yourselves proud. I am so very grateful to you all. I literally could not have done this myself, your expertise and skills are just amazing. Congratulations on throwing an absolutely epic party. It will be hard to beat!”
