Wedding Testimonials

Jade and JamesWe would like to say a missive thank you to Jacqui and simplicity events for helping organise and plan or wedding day and making our personal wedding dreams a reality. Jacqui was there to assist from the early stages of planning right up until the end of the wedding evening, Dealing with everything you can think of from the legal documents, music and entertainment, flowers, hair dresses, transport and the photographers. Knowing the best locations in the Algarve for memorable wedding pictures.

At no stage prior the wedding, and on the wedding day was nothing under control and all 40 family and friends who travelled out with us to celebrate the day could not speak more highly of Jacqui and the success of the day.

We would not hesitate in recommending Simplicity events and especially Jacqui to help plan and coordinate one of the most important days of your life. Helping to be at ease and enjoy the build up and the full experience of the Algarve.

Sian and MikeWe can't believe it is all over and we are back in raining Cardiff, we really did have the best day (and week)!

We want to thank you so much for EVERYTHING you have done for us from the time we got in touch with you, the first time we and visited all the different venues, putting us in touch with anyone we needed, the lead up to the wedding, and most importantly, on the actual wedding day!

You dealt with correspondence and coordinating with the suppliers, letting us know what you needed and when in plenty of time. You made the planning enjoyable, taking all stress away from us. You were even in touch with my mum (little did we know) to arrange a surprise DVD on the wedding day, and nothing seemed to much trouble for you.

On the Wedding Day, you really were a god send! I didn't need to think about anything other than getting ready, making it to the church on time and having fun.

You stayed throughout the day and night, making sure everything ran smoothly and it couldn't have been more perfect!

We only met a few times, but after our constant emails over the past year we felt completely at ease that you had everything under control and you did! We can't thank you enough!!

See you when we are next in the Algarve, will keep in touch.

Love Sian, Mike - 2013


Jade and JamesThanks SO SO SO much for everything!

We had such a carefree relaxed day on Friday knowing you were there taking care of everything running smoothly. I will definitely be recommending you to anyone looking for a planner in Portugal.

I’m sure we will be in touch anyway.

Susan and TomWe contacted Jacqui in Jan '12 & from then we did not look back, Jacqui is a true professional & really knows what is involved in planning a Fantastic wedding... We had a budget that was not huge; Jacqui was great at advising us of what makes an amazing day. She really thought of EVERYTHING right down to the tiny details that we would have not thought of. She was always great at replying to every email, text, phone call...
She basically planned our wedding & it was so stress free & really enjoyable... From our 1st meeting she listened to what we wanted for our wedding & made it all happen.
We were married in sept '12 & our day was FANTASTIC.... She was there 1st thing that morning ensuring everything was running to plan. Along with her top class professionalism she is a lovely lady, so friendly, bubbly, and easy to talk with a true love for her job as a wedding planner. We really felt like great friends as the months went on.
All our guests were amazed at such a great day we were able to give them. From start to finish we can honestly say there was not 1 fault only a truly special day for the both of us along with our gorgeous 2yr daughter & our families & close friends.
When it comes to planning your wedding, for a stress free & a truly enjoyable experience (which is what your wedding should be) Jacqui is your girl....
Jacqui, THANK YOU so much for all you did & for making the whole lot such a wonderful & once again amazing wedding day xXx

Yana and Fergal I would like to say a Big Thank You to Jacqui from us and on behalf of our guests.

Our Wedding Day was an unforgettable experience: location, catering and entertainment was first class and exceeded our expectations. It certainly made a lasting impression on all guests - they kept saying it was ''The Best Wedding'' they were ever at. Thanks to Jacqui, we had a Wedding with a WOW factor even with our modest budget. Every bride has a ''Dream Wedding'' and Jacqui is the right person to help you realize your dream. With expert local knowledge and wide portfolio of suppliers, attention to detail and ''can do'' attitude she will make your wedding planning as pleasurable and stress-free as it can be.

No request was too big or too small and she was always there to answer my countless emails and gave us lots of great ideas. She was there for the whole day coordinating and making sure all goes according to the plan, so we could just relax and enjoy every minute of our special day.

We highly recommend Simplicity Events to anyone planning to get married in the Algarve!

Claire and PatrickJust want to say a massive thanks to you for all the hard work you did. It was a pleasure to work with you and we were more relaxed than we could have ever hoped. The fact that we hadn't seen most things before
we saw them on the day made it just as amazing for us as our guests. Everyone has been raving about it and it surpassed all our expectations. I already have two new clients for you both from Limerick so keep an eye out for them. Thanks again and we'll keep in touchlots of love.

We got married in the Algarve in July 2011. When we first thought about getting married in Portugal, we got in contact with Simplicity Events and met with Jacqui and we can honestly say, that we never looked back. Jacqui was in touch with us for the full year up to the wedding day. She was so professional and patient with all our requests and last minute changes...nothing was a problem. She really took the stress out of planning a wedding and everything ran so smoothly right up to the day. We had the most special and memorable
day of our lives. Where to start... Jacqui had an amazing florist, the flowers were so beautiful, better than I could imagine. The hairdresser she arranged was fantastic.... the attention to detail was second to none! My sister in law did my make up so I didn't need a makeup artist but Jacqui arranged hair and makeup for my husband's family and they were
fantastic! The can only be described as magical....a beautiful setting within an orange grove....we had amazing canopies, cocktails, champagne, meal and more...we were treated like VIPs for the day!! Jacqui was there on the day from start to finish and took care of everything (things we didnt even think of!) with ease. The day ran so smoothly, we did not have to worry about one thing and we were able to enjoy every second!

Jacqui, all of our guests have commented on how fantastic you were... it was not until the following day, did we realise in fact how much work you put into the day. We had 150 guests at our wedding and this was not a problem for you. You were so friendly, organised and
efficient, and as a result we were entirely stress free and had the most fantastic wedding day! If only we could do it all over again :-) We just wanted to say thank you so much, we really could not have done it without you and really appreciate all the work you put in to make our day so special!! We would highly recommend Simplicity Events. In fact, we have already passed your details to others that have heard all about our wedding!! Wishing you the very best for the future, and hope to see you again, on our next trip to the Algarve. Keep in touch.
Patricia and Alan


Laura and John Paul.We got married in the Algarve in June 2011. From the onset Jacqui was on hand to offer her advice and ideas for our wedding. Her knowledge and professionalism was evident from the start and this carried through into our wedding day. Looking back over the past year I now realise I could not have organised our wedding without Jacqui’s help. As she was always only an email or phone call away it really took the pressure off me especially in the crucial weeks running up to the wedding. Having everything arranged for us meant we were able to relax and enjoy the day. Simplicity Events exceeded our expectations and we would highly recommend their services to anyone.
Laura and John Paul.




Ursula and BrianWe have just returned from our perfect wedding in the Algarve.

From start to finish everything was taken care of by Jacqui with such ease that we were left to enjoy the nicest and simplest details of the day - things you would not even think of were organised and arranged to make it so memorable and fun. Everyone commented on how unique the whole wedding was - so natural and relaxed, Jacqui made a huge impression on our guests.

Personally i will miss the emails! - Jacqui became a true friend on our journey to our wedding day - from the first meeting in the Algarve when we were shown a wide range of possibilities right up to the finer details of the actual day, she has left us with memories of a day we could not have created without her help - and for that we are so grateful.

Simplicity Events by name and most definitely by nature - thank you for listening to what we wanted and for helping us achieve it with ease, Thank you also for a friendship we hope to keep up - we'll definitely be back in the Algarve again - we may look you up!!!

Ursula and Brian


Algarve weddingWe were married in the Algarve in March of this year (2010).

I found Simplicity Events on the internet and after speaking to Jacqui I knew I had found somebody who would make every effort to make our day a very special one.
Jacqui was a dream to work with and nothing was too much trouble for her. My husband and I wanted to have a humanist wedding and this was no trouble at all for Jacqui to arrange.
I chose my cake from a photo and my flowers and both were absolutely beautiful on the day. Jacqui did all the hotel bookings, menus and even organised and booked our rooms, which I must say was absolutely out of this world as well.

On the morning of the wedding the first person to call my room was Jacqui, just to say good morning
We really had the most wonderful day, I couldn’t of planned it better. The beach club (were the ceremony was held) was decorated in vibrant Summer coloured flowers, the musicians that sang were so fantastic everyone was crying by the end of the ceremony.

Jacqui stayed until late into the night, making sure everything was running smoothly for us. If it wasn’t for her we might have forgotten to cut the cake and throw the bouquet as we were too busy having fun with our guests!

I would highly recommend using Simplicity Events if you want the wedding of your dreams. From start to finish, Jacqui was just fantastic to work with, she treated it as if it was her own big day and couldn’t have done any more than she did to make our day the best day of our lives! Thank you so much Jacqui and we will be keeping in touch (and passing on your name and number to our friends!)


Georgina and PaulWe’re heading off on honeymoon on Sunday and can’t wait. We’re heading to the USA for 3 weeks. It was great to have something to look forward to after that fantastic wedding. We just wanted to email you and say thank you so much for organising the most amazing day of our life, we couldn’t have wished for more. You were so efficient, organised, friendly and helpful and everyone with us thought you were fantastic. We couldn’t have done it without you.

Georgina and Paul













Eva and ConorWe just wanted to say thanks a million for everything, we had a brilliant time & everything worked out so well. Hope all is well with you and Thanks again, I will be sure to recommend you if I hear of anyone getting married abroad.

Eva and Conor













Joanne and Donald John.We would just like to say a great big thank you, to Simplicity Events and Jacqui.  Without them, our wedding day wouldn't have been so amazing.

We got in contact with Simplicity Events in December '09, for our wedding in Albufeira Portugal (September '10) and from then on, we knew all our worries would be taken care of.

Jacqui helped us with all the paper work, church, wedding reception, music, photographer, flower's etc..... which can be very stressful.  Everything fell into place perfectly and we were over the moon with the wedding day itself, couldn't have asked for more.

If we know of anyone in the future, who is thinking of getting married in the Algarve, Simplicity Events and Jacqui will be the first names mentioned, for a unforgettable wedding day.

Once again, thank you so much to Simplicity Events for the best day of our lives.

Joanne and Donald John.



From the time I first contacted Jacqui until the end I was treated with respect and professionalism. Jacqui was always available to answer my endless list of questions and never made me feel as if I was ever bothering her. I also got the feeling that this occasion was almost as important to her as it was to us. That's a good feeling.

If the opportunity comes, I will definitely recommend Jacqui any special event. Our wedding was wonderful and very memorable.

Bromwen and Steven


It was the first time that we had been abroad at a wedding and we had the best time ever. Credit to Jacqui everything was beautifully done and I have already recommended her Company to some of my friends who are thinking of getting married abroad.

Belinda & John

We hope to return next year for our anniversary. We will arrange to meet with you next year when we visit,if that is ok.

Thank you again from the bottom of out hearts.

Tara and Barry


It was lovely to meet you and I couldn't be more pleased with the progress we have made.

I didn't have to do anything every thing was organised for me, I was able to go out shopping for the day with my husband, and when I came back it was all done.
