Yvonne and Sean


Yvonne and Sean had a wedding filled with lots of sentimentality and a whole lot of laughs from their family and friends.

Yvonne and Sean, both from Ireland, planned their amazing day with us over the internet and by phone all the way from Australia. It was a huge leap of faith from them and the day couldn´t have been more perfect, so many of their loved ones joined them for their traditional Church Blessing in Alvor, followed by their wedding reception overlooking the sea where they all danced the night away well into the early hours. We had so much fun with this couple it was definately one to remember!



I am soooooo unbelievably sorry (and embarrassed!!!!!) that it has taken me almost a year to send you both a note to say thank you for doing such a fantastic job of our wedding!!

From start to finish we felt like we (and our wedding) were in very safe and capable hands with Unique and Chic Wedding Planners.

Your relaxed yet extremely professional attitude and approach to wedding planning is a testament to you both and to your dedication to giving your clients their dream day,  you certainly delivered us our dream day! It is very clear that you both love what you do and that you have a natural talent for putting clients at ease while ensuring that all aspects of the day run smoothly.

Planning a destination wedding (Irish couple living in Australia but getting married in Portugal) can be a daunting task at the best of times but working with you both felt like I had two great friends at home planning it all for me which made the whole experience a million times better (and more fun!!!)

Amelia you did such a beautiful job of the decor for the church and reception venue and Jane your make-up artistry skills are fantastic you both listened to what we wanted and made sure that everything was executed perfectly on the day.

All of our guests commented on how fantastic the wedding was and how relaxed both Sean and I were and we told them all that it was down to you and that we couldn’t recommend you girls enough!!

Can you please also pass on our appreciation to all your extended team (vendors/venues)

– Michelle for the beautiful flowers every time I look at photos from our wedding I am so happy with how beautiful they all turned out. My bouquet was amazing and I couldn’t have pictured a more perfect one for me I absolutely loved it!

– and to the guys from The Originals I still have people raving that they were the by far the best wedding band they have ever seen. And how right they were the band was brilliant and we had SO MUCH FUN with them!!!!

– And of course to all the team at the Sao Rafael a stunning venue with impeccable service and professionalism throughout the whole day. The team was a pleasure to deal with throughout the planning process and on the day itself

Jane, can you please also pass on a special thank you to your dad and all the team at Hickey’s pub. All our guests loved the pub and it will definitely be our first port of call on our next trip back to Alvor.

Anyway ladies, thank you again so much for everything, you girls are amazing at what you do and we wish you both all the success in the world with your business and in life!
