Patricia became a wedding planner seven years ago, so we asked her about her
decision to start her own wedding business in the sunny Algarve.
How did you decide to become a wedding planner?
It came to me in a totally different way, as 7 years ago I didn’t even know that this job existed! I started working
at another agency and I fell in love with the job, so, not too long
afterwards, I decided to have my own company to start working on what I love with passion.
What's the best part about being a wedding planner?
really the relationship that we have with our couples. We have weddings that
are booked 2 to 3 years ahead, so its not only a professional relationship.

Which areas of the Algarve do you enjoy organising weddings in, and why?
As we are planners in the Algarve, sea view venues are the ones that we
enjoy most, as we can see that family and friends are having a unique
experience, but in general, even the country side of Algarve is unique!
What's the most unusual wedding you've organised?
with a lovely and romantic couple, already in their 70’s, and I had to
organize everything like if it was my own wedding! The couple left all the
decisions with me, I was delighted with how the day turned out.
What's the most popular type of wedding you organise?
of the couples choose venues that are outdoors and with sea views.
What advice would you give couples wanting to get married in Portugal?
Portugal/Algarve, I believe it is one of the top wedding destinations, it
has so many good things to offer. I would advise couples to always get in
touch with 2 different planners, and to choose the one that they click with
best, and not just to decide on cost. Their planner will be the person they
will deal for several months and also their best friend.
