Hi Sinead we’re also organizing the wedding without a planner, have visited the Algarve last April after having contacted several venues and suppliers in the area, so far have a pre-booking at Canico restaurant and Monte das Alagoas both in Alvor, haven’t decided for a definite venue yet but leaning towards Canico restaurant our group ain’t that big therefore looking for an intimate place to hold the wedding. I’m sure if you do a search online you’ll be able to find more venues in Alvor and you can always contact them for further info as prices will depend on how many guests you’re expecting, also you’ll be able to find enough suppliers promoting their business online, have pre-booked a female photographer (sam7) after checking several ones but thought her style appealed more to us than the other photographers, for music have pre-booked Double Cocktail band for the whole day including their DJ service, we checked their videos online and these are simply brilliant, for flowers we are in contact with a florist called suzannah she’s also great and quick on coming back to e-mails. Let me know if you need any further help. Good luck x

Yes we are getting married in Alvor but still in between 2 venues, monte das alagoas or canico rest although our preference goes to the restaurant we only have a small group, how many are you expecting? have spoken to bruno the owner of monte das alagoas when visited last April and he informed us the marquee can be divided in two for smaller groups unfortunately our number of guests still might be too small for that space although it looks such a lovely place to get married the only cons I found is there’s no sea view whilst the canico restaurant has a breathtaking view overlooking the beach…. simply unreal! We thought of doing the legal bit back home to avoid the hassle abroad, just a blessing... Have you done some research online regarding other venues around Alvor area and suppliers? Good luck x

Hi Sinead,
I'm getting married in alvor sept next year.
Having the ceremony at senhora da rocha then reception at montes das alagoas.

I have pro booked Twin Flames but the hubby to be is not keen on them he'd prefer an actual band.
We are using a planner but i am doing a lot of research and planning.
Have you thought any more about it?

Hi girls me and hubby ended up booking the Canico restaurant, in the beginning was thorn between Monte das alagoas and Canico but the last one has a breathtaking sea view and that was the reason we now booked it. Also have Double Cocktail for the music including their DJ they are simply fab! firstly had a pre booking on a girl called Sally from Sam7 photography but have now decided to look a bit further have contacted an irish guy based in the Algarve called Gary Walsh he seems to have done quite some weddings now waiting on him to come back, we are not having a videographer this will save us some money to use it on other aspects of the day, an uncle of ours will be doing the footage for us also having a blessing only no fuss with paperwork we will do the legal bit back home before heading to the Algarve. Have a question for you girls: is the pre-marriage course compulsory? completely blank on this x

We are having a civil ceremony and we do not need to complete a course, so our planner has informed us.
