Wow! This should not have taken me 2 months to write but it’s taken a while to come back down off of cloud 9!

Sandbanks, Vale do Lobo hosted our wedding on 16 May 2015 and what an amazing day it was. Not only did the 28 degree sunshine beam down on our day but it exceeded our expectations in every aspect!

From visiting the restaurant and the Praςa since I was a little girl I always knew it was my dream to have it as my wedding venue – when the owners agreed I was ecstatic.

Sue, Ian & Miguel along with all the other staff listened so well to our requests and let us organise the majority of the day (which we wanted to do, along with the assistance of Valerie from Algarve Wedding Planners!)

The attention to detail was incredible from the little things like how we wanted the tables laid with the name places/favours to the big things like arranging the best wedding band available for the Party in Monty’s – Daddy Jack Band.

All of our guests (65) made comments that it is the best wedding they ever attended and although we’re biased we totally agree with them – our friends getting married next have got a hard act to follow!

One of the things that really made Sandbanks stand out from other venues apart from the spectacular view and location was the fact we were able to offer our guests a menu and they could choose their meal on the day. Most venues ask you to select one dish for each of the courses and that can be so hard when trying to satisfy a variety of palettes. Not only could we pick the food on the day but it was up to an exceptional standard.

Instead of flower centre pieces we decided to have large cocktails in the centre of each table and named each table after each cocktail – this was something else that Sandbanks assisted us with as we had to be mindful of which cocktails we chose. The cocktails were a great addition and went down so well with the guests that they were all finished before the starters even made an appearance! Prior to the meal during the welcome drinks we had a variety of canapés floating about which again were to an exceptional standard. As a surprise to us Sandbanks had arranged beautiful ice sculptures to be dotted around the venue, one of which was keeping our Prosecco cool. I hadn’t even imagined having ice sculptures at our wedding and it was such a nice touch!! A further special treat we had was the chance to perform our first dance in the middle of the Praca with Louisa singing our first dance song live! Such a nerve racking but once in a lifetime experience! The defining moment was having our party in Montys meaning we could party til 4am with our guests, as no-one wanted to leave at 2am when the coach was originally booked for. Thankfully we were all staying at the Monte de Quinta resort so only a short taxi ride away in the early hours.

We were so lucky with the weather because if it had been raining or windy the deck at the top would not have been able to be utilised because it so exposed, the staff were prepared they had a plan B ready, just in case (although I’m overjoyed that Plan A was able to go ahead). We are so glad that Garrett of AlgarveWeddingPhotography captured our day from every angle so we have beautiful memories to look back on for years to come.

My new husband and I returned to Sandbanks for a meal on our last night in Portugal and as always it was a beautiful meal in a wonderful setting. If you get the opportunity to hold a wedding or event at Sandbanks I highly recommend it! We will continue with our annual visit to the Algarve and will always ensure that Sandbanks gets a visit each time. Thank you Sid, Ian, Sue, Miguel, Nelson, Louisa, Brito and all your wonderful staff for making our special day so perfect!
