Dear Theresa and Maria, Josh and I are headed out on our honeymoon but I wanted to thank you once again for the incredible job both of you did. I had no idea where to begin and finding you made everything so much easier and stress free. I never imagined planning a wedding from 5000 miles away would work so well. Thank you for answering every question, accommodating every change, addressing the last minute hiccups, and putting everyone at ease. Your advice and expertise were invaluable. The wedding was absolutely beautiful and felt like a fairytale for us. Having the reception in the parador was a dream come true and even a few days later, I am still getting messages from guests saying I’ve ruined weddings for them. Nothing could possibly top this one! Josh was incredibly impressed and in awe of the final product. So much of this was a surprise for him and I’m so happy it exceeded all his expectations. He was very excited by how everything turned out. I’m sure my mother has already expressed this, but both my parents are so grateful and thankful for both of you as well. Neither one of them will stop talking about how amazing you are. They both consider you to be among some of the kindest and most open-hearted people they’ve ever met - a sentiment I likewise share. Your work made our day truly unforgettable. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts, Alexis and Josh
We’ve worked with Theresa and AWOL in Granada to create an unforgettable wedding experience. Our guests, who visited from eleven countries couldn’t stop raving about it and called it a fairytale wedding, starting #therealroyalwedding - as ours was the day prior to the wedding of the duke and duchess of Sussex on May 18th:) Theresa (and Maria) are true professionals who listen, make your wishes come through in a non-fuss, practical manner, and give solid advice. She has a laidback and flexible attitude, yet at the same time is very punctual and organized and we never had to worry about a thing. She made everything look easy, the food, the flowers, the venues, the musicians, all of it was amazing! (And I'm not easy to please - I might add) I would highly recommend their services, at a very reasonable rate, I might add, and we will be forever grateful! Thank you, Theresa, you are the BEST!!!!
Hi Theresa, I just arrived in New York last night for my cousins wedding. I finally have time to process everything from the weekend! What a whirlwind of a time in Granada. I did not get a chance to really thank you for everything. Chris and I thought you did an amazing job! Everything went smoothly and all the events were fantastic. The guests thought this weekend had a great flow to it and no hiccups and said planning must have been a beast. We couldn't have done it without you! Thank you for making this happen and communicating to all of the support staff and keeping us accountable for turning in what we needed to provide. Our guests were really impressed with all the events, the quality of the venues, service and amount of food. Thank you for turning vision into reality, and executing down to the last detail. Paella show was a real hit! Everyone had so much fun, we have pictures to prove it! Thanks for setting us up here. The rehearsal dinner site and meal had people so excited about the Sunday wedding. They thought, wow if this is rehearsal I can't imagine what is going to happen tomorrow! Tea ceremony was a highlight of the night and my aunt said the Las tomasas restaurant knew what to do. All in part to your communication with them prior! My bridesmaids were stunned at the parador. I even noticed a few tears from the girls! Parador delivered beyond expectations to create such a magical experience. Right before I walked down the aisle, all the wait staff greeted me by the courtyard door. It was a Disney moment. This is where I started to get emotional and realized it's show time! Many guests said this was the best wedding they have ever been to in their lifetime. Everyone was in a great mood. We know our friends and family pretty well and we know they had the time of their life! Chris and I had the time of our life! This was something really special. Nerine did a phenomenal job, I was the most nervous about them but they were spot on! Beautiful arrangements and personalized delivery, I wish I had Fernando in San Diego! I don't think the English language has words to describe how magical everything looked. The pedestals were my favorite. Mom also said the flowers were her favorite part of the wedding! Somehow the flowers and vines magically appeared at the reception. Thank you for ensuring this happened perfectly! Please thank your contact at eurostars, and the staff for putting up with our guest demands and putting on a great welcome cocktail, my family thought it was a wonderful start to finish. The hotel was truly everything you said it was! The Alhambra tour went well and thank you for getting us setup with guides and tickets. Lastly the cake, thanks for the lead on lussocake! It tasted really good. Granada is truly a gem, and my friends can't wait to visit again and my family wants to move there! That's how wonderful this trip was. I wish you all the success and prosperity and hope to see you again someday! Please let me know if there's anything I can help you with on reviews! Hugs and kisses! Best, Anna & Chris
Hello Theresa and Maria, Tony and I wanted to drop you both a note to thank you for all of your help in making our wedding blessing night so wonderful and memorable. From the decorations and flowers at the venue to the photography to the hair/makeup and of course the delicious food (just to name a few things), everything was top-notch. Our guests are still talking about how "enchanting" the night was, and we thank you both for all your work leading up to June 25th and on the day so that everything could run smoothly :) Thank you again. We are still on cloud nine! Joey & Tony
Dear Theresa, First of all we would like to say a big THANK YOU to you and your team! You did an amazing job helping us prepare for the wedding and especially supporting us in the entire process! We loved the wedding and everything about it! And without you this would not have been possible! Best regards Juliana & Andreas
Hi Theresa, Now that we are back home and getting settled back in to our day-to-day lives, I wanted to reach out and thank you for your help in planning our wedding weekend. Everyone was so amazed with all the locations and venues ("How did you find this place?!?") and we have you to thank for all of it. Your insider knowledge and work really made the weekend special. Everything went so smoothly, as well -- everyone kept commenting on how calm I was. The tour guide (Danny) at the Alhambra was excellent -- his language skills were excellent and his knowledge was impressive. He was a great find. Thank you so much for your help with everything. I'm sad that it's over, but it was wonderful! - Leslie and Mehdi
Theresa was amazing from the moment we got in touch & even before we decided to hire her. Within 24 hours of emailing her she had, called us back to talk through what we wanted, secured our venue & even our church, we never had to speak to anyone else & we're so glad we didn't. Theresa was so organised, yet personal in her style, so professional with us & all the different people who we/she had to speak to. She got the balance right in looking after our needs & not putting us under any pressure. She has a huge knowledge of Granada & seems to know everyone who lives & works there, this is a massive bonus when you are planning a wedding in a small place like Granada, the most beautiful place we could have picked to get married. We were so lucky to have found Theresa & will always be so grateful for everything she did for us. If you're looking for an amazing wedding planner who will do anything for you & has that personal touch with all she deals with then Theresa & AWOL are perfect.
Dear Theresa, We couldn't have asked for a more perfect day. Right from the beginning with the preparation and organisation throughout, everything went very smoothly without a hitch. And your team were great too. It was a huge weight off our minds knowing we could reply on you. It made for a very enjoyable day and allowed us to spend time with our friends and family on this special occasion. Thank you for such a great experience. Highly recommended! Teresa & Leam
"Theresa and her team a t AWOL gave us the perfect destination wedding in Granada, Spain. The support and level of expertise and organisation was second to none. The entire process was so smooth and stress free, and we were able to enjoy the experience without having to worry about anything. It was such a marvellous occasion for both of us and we can't thank Theresa and her team enough!"
Good Morning Theresa, Now that we have had a few weeks to reflect back on the wedding whilst on honeymoon, all I can say is that it was truly magical, amazing and was everything we had envisioned and a whole lot more. You and Kate did a fabulous job setting up, organizing and making the night so memorable! Nothing I can say could translate the gratitude we have for you and Kate, your execution, and delivery from the months leading up to especially the day of. 5 stars isn´t a limit that we could capture all you have done. All of the guests that I have talked to said it was one of the most beautiful weddings that they have been to! I give you and Kate all the credit for turning the venue into something so spectacular. Thanks again for being such an amazing friend/ wedding planner! All the love in the world, Charotte & David
We haven’t had a chance to say how very grateful we are for everything. The wedding weekend was the best of our lives, we are not sure we will ever surpass it. So many of our guests have commented since on how amazing it all was, not just the day itself but the whole weekend. We could never have done it without you and your team. From arranging a fantastic tapas crawl for 80 people in the run-up, to the spectacular venues and guiding us through all the church admin and paperwork. The recommendations made and suppliers you secured for us were all fabulous, from the florist, hair and make-up, the tapas guides, and everyone at las Tomasas and la Chumbera. It was everything we could have hoped for, and more. Granada was the most perfect destination for our wedding, I could not recommend it and the service provided by AWOL enough. We will let you know as soon as we have all our photos to share. Many thanks again, Danuta & Tim
As parents of the bride & groom (Charlotte & David), we would like to unreservedly thank Theresa for all her hard work on our behalf. Leading up to the wedding, Theresa's organisation was faultless. The venue she recommended was spectacular and it was obvious that the whole occasion had been co-ordinated with much thought & sensitivity. David & Charlotte said that it was 'the best day of their lives'. Chris & Christine [caption id="attachment_5623" align="alignright" width="150"] Charlotte & David's Wedding[/caption]
Dear Theresa, Hope everything is good with you. We want to thank you for your help and commitment for our wedding. You really made it a special one.This is a short recommendation we wish to add- Many thanks again for all your support:"Since we decided to get married we knew the wedding had to be in Spain. After contacting Theresa her professionalism and attention to detail made the process of organising a wedding from far a lot easier. We were more than happy with the outcome and the quality of the service provided by her and her team. She was always prompt to answer to our requests and find the right people for the job. We highly recommend working with her for a beautiful wedding in Spain."Kind regards,Maha & Juan[caption id="attachment_6702" align="alignright" width="150"] Beautiful Bride & Groom Maha & Juan[/caption]
We were planning a wedding Granada but live in the U.S. It never would have happened without Theresa's expert assistance. She made everything so easy, from the big things like organizing the venues to the smaller details like gifts of chocolate for our guests. She even provided calming words and reassurance when the bride started getting nervous; all via email and Skype! Her help did not stop there; she was with us every step of the way from the moment we arrived in Granada until the end of the reception. Thank you Theresa for organizing such an an amazing day! Teresa and Francisco USA -- Thanks again and wishing you continued success and happiness. [caption id="attachment_5452" align="alignright" width="150"] Wedding in Granada[/caption]
Hi Theresa Blair and I have just arrived at our first honeymoon location. We cannot thank you enough for all of your hard work and professionalism. Our day was absolutely perfect - from start to finish! A lot of people (ourselves included) may feel apprehensive about planning a wedding abroad but you made it so easy. You were always available to discuss ideas and took all of the stress away from us as a couple. Our friends and family were blown away by the location, food, weather and atmosphere. We had several people comment that it was the best wedding they had ever been to 😌 We are obviously biased - but we agree wholeheartedly!! Such a fantastic day - we can't stop talking about it and looking at the photos. Cannot thank you and your team enough! Please pass on our thanks to everyone. Maria, La Chumbera, Sabina etc. We loved everything!!! We will send La Chumbera and Kris an email too - they were fantastic! I will be recommending you at home to anyone considering a wedding in Granada! Genuinely the best week of our life. Muchas Gracias and all our love. The Gibneys 😁💗🇪🇸☀️
Good morning Theresa, I just wanted to send you a quick email from both Neil and I to say a huge thank you for helping with the planning of our wedding day which was just perfect.

Hi Theresa I am so sorry not to have emailed you sooner we have just returned from honeymoon this week and turned off all forms of communication whilst away which was a real treat! We left Spain the day after our wedding and have had 3 fantastic weeks in South Africa and Mauritius and are now back to a rather wet London. However, I have been wanting to write to you properly and thank you so much for everything you did for us for our wedding, we are so truly truly grateful for your help and assistance in the lead up to the wedding and across the whole weekend. I am sorry we didn't get to say good bye to you properly on the wedding day in amongst the madness of photos etc. We had the most amazing weekend of our lives and thanks to you and all your wonderful assistance and organisation we were really able to properly relax and not worry about a thing on the day! Everything ran very smoothly and all our guests said it was the best wedding they'd been to which is hugely down to you and Silvia putting so much work into it. Here are some arty photos from Owen, it's just a small selection we are waiting for the rest to come through but it tells a story of the day! http://owenfarrellphotography.com/blog/louise-luis-sept-8th-2012-cortijo-de-marques-granada-2/ I hope you have had a good September and I wish you all the best for the future. We shall definitely be back to Granada and to stay at the Cortijo hopefully next year for our anniversary! Best wishes
Hi Theresa Just wanted to let you know that everything was absolutely amazing. The Abbey and Las Tomasas were breathtaking and the food was literally the best thing we've had in spain. The cake came out so beautiful, exactly what I wanted thank you so much!
Hi Theresa, Thank you again for everything! We are still amazed at how well everything worked out, and its a huge thanks to you! We hope you had a great time at the wedding and we thank you so much for all your help and hard work making our day so amazing! We think the world of you and are so happy that we found you on that September night back in 2011. We'll send photos soon and may even just call ya every once in a while. We're going to miss our skype calls.
Hi Theresa, Just wanted to send a quick email to Thank you for all your hard work and especially on the day in the heat. Thanks for your quick thinking on the bar to avoid the heat for a while. We have just about recovered and we are now getting our bags packed for Honeymoon.
Dear Theresa, We just wanted to say a huge thank you for all your help both before and on the day, everything went so perfectly and was better than we could have hoped for, and in a large part that was down to you! Forum Copas looked stunning with the flowers and the cake etc. and you did a great job setting all that up. We are now back in Germany, in the rain and I have a dissertation to write, arrghhh- when we have some pics from the photographers I will send some on to you! :)
Hi Theresa! I hope you are doing well and having a chance to rest up a little bit in between your big events. Please let me thank you once again from the bottom of our hearts, for making Mo and I's wedding come true and for playing a fundamental part in making the day run so smoothly and soo beautifully. Thank you thank you thank you, from both of us! Not only have you helped make our wedding come true but we feel we've gained a friend in Granada. Many thanks and many hugs.
Theresa, Thank you so much for everything!!! You've helped create the most incredible wedding for us and the most magical unforgettable experience for us and our guests. 46 people have an adventure to hold with them in their hearts for the rest of their lives for every day you made for them while here in Granada. Torrie and I will never forget what you have done for us. We have such overwhelming love and gratitude and are so proud and thankful to have started the rest of our lives with you. More than the trip and the experiences you helped create here in Granada we will hold you in our hearts forever.
Dear Theresa, You are a legend!!! Everyone had such a great time! We couldn't have asked for a more perfect wedding!!! Thanks you so much.
Dear Theresa, The real star of my wedding experience was you! You were so helpful, accommodating, and organized throughout the process of planning my wedding. You were so patient with all of our guests and with my zillions of at ease and took care of all the details. So my only advice for future brides and grooms who work with Theresa is: trust her recommendations, as she is always spot on with all of her suggestions. I loved working with you and I couldn't have imagined a more perfect wedding!
Hi Theresa I am finally sitting down to write my thank you cards this coming week (terrible, I know!). We miss you all and hope to visit Spain again some time soon. All of our family and friends who attended the wedding are still raving about what a great time it was! We have wonderful memories and are so glad we opted for a destination wedding. Have a happy new year and hope to hear from you soon!
Dear Theresa, Thank you so much for all your hard work and recommendations, all of which created the most fantastic day for us and our guests. We were just delighted with how well everything worked, both on the actual day and in relation to the food-wine evening, the hotel etc. On the day, your preparation too so much stress out of the proceedings, and allowed us to just enjoy the day - it all went so fast! We would be happy to recommend you to any friends, and provide testimonials at any point. Please thank your assistant too who did a brilliant job especially with some of our more difficult guests. Friends have been commenting how impressed it all ran and how little they had to do but sit there, cry, smile, get on a bus and then eat and drink! We thought it might be helpful to give you our feedback on certain parts of the day for your future wedding guests who are thinking of doing the same. We were super impressed with the Parador facilities particularly with the rainforecast , having the chairs inside the chapel with the lovely floral arrangement which guests thought worked better as it was more intimate with the wedding vows. Mark was great, the harp and players were beautiful and the appetizers were super impressive, they remembered the vegans and vegetarians and we loved the drinks, particularly Tim who could not get enough of the red wine served. The Aben Humaya's location was perfect and the tables worked out nicely. The appetizers were lovely and plenty of them. We wish you the best success with AWOL. With our best wishes and heartfelt thanks,
Dear Theresa Thank you so much for the help you gave us for our June Wedding. We are home and back to earth now but will always have the memories from our “Big Day”. Mark was great and we hope he enjoyed it as much as us, the band were sensational and the bus was bang on time, so once again thanks for your help and perhaps we will meet again. Regards,
Dear Theresa, Thank you Theresa, Your help from venue ideas to flowers to legal paperwork was seamless. On the day you were invisible but ever present (even there to avert disaster by stopping me from eating food I was allergic to). The people you work with are professional, great at what they do and we wouldn’t have found them without you. People still say to us it was the best wedding they’ve been to. –Thank you for making our day so memorable. I hope you have a well earned rest. Kind Regards,
Hi Theresa, Thanks you so much for all your hard work in making our wedding happen just the way we wanted it! We have fantastic memories of the day and definitely could not have done it without you. I hope these pictures are a nice reminder of the day, all the best, and if we're ever in Granada again, we'll definitely be in touch! Love from
Dear Theresa, I hope you are well! Thank you for making our wedding so special. We just got all our pictures in order, and we are so grateful that you helped us in every way. We would love to buy Mark and Ruben's cd, I believe it's out some time this summer? Please let me know, and have a nice summer. Best,
Hi Theresa Nick and I had an amazing time on our wedding day. The fact that we were going from one place to another was actually brilliant and all 3 venues were stunning. We danced until 7 in the morning, it was incredible and then we carried on for two more days at the Cortijo Argumosa. By Monday night I had completely lost my voice and was exhausted but we had the most fantastic time with our friends. So thank you so much for your help with everything, especially regarding the most important thing to me during the wedding: to know that Raphael was ok. And that was completely the case thanks to Ines who is the most amazing baby-sitter and one of the sweetest girl I have ever met. She was just perfect with Raphael and it was so important to me because thanks to this I really manage to relax and enjoy the wedding (I was so much in confidence that I even forgot to take her phone number with me on the night!!!...thanks for texting it to me)
Dear Theresa I would like to thank you for all your efforts in making Alice and Jay's wedding so special. When one's daughter says "Dad, it was everything I hoped it would be" you know you - and everyone involved - has done well !! The phones calls have already started thanking us for such a brilliant weekend. Please tell Oscar that the Flamenco show was perfect. Once again, many thanks. Best wishes
Hi Theresa, We arrived back from honeymoon early yesterday morning and people are still talking about how great our wedding was. I am the eldest of 37 cousins and the first to get married and the family said I've set the bench mark very high for the rest of them! Thank you so much for all your help, everything was perfect. Thanks again for everything, I can't thank you enough!!! Love
Dear Theresa, Thanks so much for all your help over the last year. We apologize for all the conference calls and project management plans! You have such a gift for you profession! With much love,
Dear Theresa, My wife and I (and every single one of the other guests) thought that Andrew and Tamara's wedding was just lovely, one of the best, if not the very best we had been to. I know you had a very big part in it so my heartfelt congratulations to you.
Dear Theresa, Thank you so much for making our wedding day amazing. It was such a fabulous day and week and we can't thank you enough for all of your help and support. All of our friends and family have commented on how brilliant you were. We loved the hotels, flowers, make-up, hair and donkey! What can I say, you have a real gift for wedding organization! Thanks so much
Dear Theresa, Just a short note to say thank you so much for all your hard work in making the day so perfect! Everyone has been talking about it ever since, and we can't stop looking at the photos. I've already recommended you to a friend! Lots of Love
Hi Theresa, I really appreciate everything you have done for us - from the last minute decision to get married to the last minute running around...hehehe! It was truly a great experience and a beautiful wedding. We couldn't have done it without you! I hope you don't decide to change careers after becoming a 'personal shopper' but maybe you could incorporate your newly found talent into your services...hehehe! Thank you again for EVERYTHING! We REALLY appreciate it! Take care and keep in touch,
Dear Theresa, Thank you so much for making our day run perfectly. Everyone you recommended was spot on and all of our guests said it was the best wedding they've ever been to!!! Love,
Theresa, Where can we start in saying how grateful we are for all you have done for us over the past days, weeks and months. Thank you for all your wisdom, all your planning and organisation and all your kindness to us both in planning out big day. All our love
Dear Theresa, We just wanted to say how much we appreciated all of your help this weekend. We are delighted with every aspect of our wedding preparation and we are now so looking forward to the big day (albeit very nervously!) Hope you enjoyed your family time and we look forward to being in touch soon. Best,
Dear Theresa, Firstly we must apologize for not writing to thank you for organizing such a fab wedding in May. We have memories we will treasure forever and you made all our wedding dreams come true, thank you. We dream of getting back to Cazulas some day, it's such a magical place. Love from
Hi Theresa, I just wanted to give you a HUGE thank you for all the assistance you gave to Miranda and James; the wedding was not only beautiful, it was superbly organised! Kind regards,
Alice and I would like to say how much we enjoyed our wedding and how much we appreciate all off your hard work. We have had so many brilliant comments from friends and family simply saying it was the best wedding that they have ever been to. For Alice and I it was simply the best day of our lives and the whole weekend was just perfect. This was all made possible by your self and the excellent service you provided. Every one told me before that organising a wedding is the most stressful time ever and the fact that we were doing this abroad would make it even harder. But we can honestly say that it was very stress free and you made it very easy. Everything was exactly what we had dreamed of and better. So once again thank you so much and please pass our thanks on to all the staff at the wedding venue they were all 1st Class I will not hesitate to recommend you in the future and we will be visiting Granada again In the near future. Good luck for the future Kind Regards
Dear Sonia and Theresa, Apologies for not being in touch sooner. I just want to thank both of you from the bottom of my heart for all your help in organising the most amazing wedding. You were soo professional and brilliant, I can't believe how well everything went on the day and it truly was a magical day. The amount of people who said it to me about how helpful you both were over the last 11 months and for organising the taxi's and mini bus back to Malaga airport. I hope that we weren't a nightmare couple for you both. We are back to normal now after a fabulous honeymoon. Its very hard to get back to work but it has to be done. We are hoping to make it back to Granada next Sept for our first anniversary and it would be lovely to meet up with both of you. Till then take care and thank you once again
Dear Theresa & Sonia, Thank you so much for all your help. We had the most fantastic and beautiful wedding and couldn't have done it without you both. Thanks again
Dear Sonia & Theresa, I hope you are both well and business is good. We have had a baby girl, Sophie Ana, born on 13th November (6 lb 7 oz). Her middle name is after the Santa Ana church we were married in. She is a beautiful little baby and it is lovely being a family. We hope to return to Granada and we will pay you a visit when we do. Hope you have a lovely Christmas and a healthy, happy New Year.
Dear Theresa We would like to thank you for all the hard work you and Sonia put in arranging such a special day for Alex and Jens. It must be difficult to get everything just right but you did very well and remained cool, calm and patient. Thanks also to Sabina for the beautiful hairstyles for Alex and the bridesmaids - just what they wanted. Once again thank you and very best wishes for the future.
Dear Theresa & Sonia, We just wanted to write a few lines to say thank you for all your help with our wedding, we couldn't have done it without you. We had such an amazing day and all our guests thought the venue and service was superb. A day to be remembered by all. We hope you are coping well and wish you all the very best for the future Love,
Dear Theresa & Sonia, Thank you both so much for giving us an amazing wedding! You made our dreams come true! Hope all is well with you.
Hi Theresa, I am just sending you a quick mail to once again thank you and Sonia so much for making our wedding a very special time for both myself and Karen and also for all our guests who travelled over as everyone of them said what an absolutely brilliant job you both did in helping us to organise the best wedding most of them have been to. So thanks so much again Kindest Regards
Hi Theresa and Sonia, Hope you are both well. We got back from our honeymoon late last week and had a great time. Thanks once again for making the wedding perfect!
I really cannot express how invaluable the services of AWOL were to us. Theresa and Sonia are two very experienced and professional people. They take care right down to every last detail in order to make your special day a truly wonderful event. We should have got married on September 17th 2005 but unfortunately I lost my Father in the August and we had to cancel, this is where AWOL really were invaluable, they helped to rearranged exactly the same wedding for May 13th this year. I am pleased to say that we had the best day of our life, with absolutely no hitches at all. AWOL made what could have been a very emotional day a really special day to remember. We still have many of our guests telling us that it really was the best wedding that they have ever been to.
From our very first contact with AWOL they stood out a mile from any of the other organisations we had spoken to. They gave a real sense of knowing the city and tuning into exactly what it was we wanted from our wedding which meant they were really able to come up with bespoke solutions as opposed to trying to pigeon hole us into venues/suppliers that they had established contacts with. We didn't really have a set budget in mind when we started planning but did find things very reasonable out there compared to things in England. AWOL provided us with more than enough options on almost every element to allow us to make things as economical/expensive as we wanted as well - from mini bottles of champagne at the reception to bowls from 'Todo Cien' as the table centres! There really isn't anything that I can find fault with in our whole wedding experience and although this may be slightly rose tinted glasses on a grey afternoon in London I can say hand on heart it was completely the best day of my life and Theresa and Sonia did everything to help ensure it lived up to all my expectations. From our gorgeous blessing in the chapel to the INCREDIBLE reception at La Chumbera, the amazing food, the beautiful flowers and the free-flowing wine and sangria there really wouldn't have been a single thing that I would have changed - apart from the fact that you get to do it only once! The welcome packs and advice provided by Sonia and Theresa also helped to ensure that Granada has become a fixture on several of our guests holiday destination lists!
Hi Theresa and Sonia, I've just got back from honeymoon and in the office again. Feeling a bit flat because I just didn't want to come home. I wanted to email you both to say thanks so much for everything you did to make our day so fantastic and run so smoothly!!! I said to Phil that I was sad that we wouldn't be in contact with AWOL anymore to organise another wedding!! But of course, we will keep in contact as we will still visit Granada as it is the closest airport to where my mother lives. You guys were just great and helped to make the most perfect day ever!!! I will be recommending AWOL to anyone who wishes to marry in Spain. I loved every minute of the day and our guests really enjoyed themselves. The party finished at around half 4 in the morning and thanks to you, they all got back home on the buses! I've received cards of thanks and most of the guests have contacted me to say it was the best wedding they have been to ever!!! You are more than welcome to use our pics on our website (I like the idea of fame!!) Take care and happy wedding organising for all those other lucky couples you work with!!!!! love and best wishes
Theresa and Sonia,Just wanted to say many thanks for making our stay, and Susie and Paul's wedding, such a successful event. We loved the day, and really appreciated all your hard work, planning and organising on the day - it all made it special and perfect. Thanks too for suggesting such fabulous accommodation, and for all the restaurants and outings.
Theresa / Sonia Thank you for making our wedding go so smoothly – you were simply the best and our special day will stay with us forever.
Theresa & Sonia. Thank you so much for helping to make our day so amazing. Before me and Michael got married we talked about the kind of wedding we would like and we both agreed we wanted to get married in a beautiful old church in beautiful settings. We hadn't been to Granada before, so when we travelled out there in September and saw the church and the Chumbera we knew Granada fit the bill. You helped make our dream come true. We had the most fantastic day, which we will always remember. We can't thank you enough for all your help and support. We thought you might also like to know that I have just found out I'm pregnant! So all being well we will be celebrating our first anniversary in Granada with our first child. Lots of love,
Dear Theresa, Just to say a big thnk you. we had . in Harriets words, ' the best time in the world' when we were at Paul and Susies wedding. Once again thanks again. It was fantastic
Hello Both, Well it works!! That's what I've been busy telling all my mates anyway. I wanted to repeat everything that Keeley has said opposite. We have grown to love Granada ‘ both of us ‘ but we could not have hoped for things to go as well as they did for our wedding and honeymoon. Everything and everyone was perfect, and most was down to you both. We can not thank you enough.
Dear Theresa & Sonia, Thank you both ever so much for the hard work and dedication you put into making Susie and my wedding day (and the week surrounding that day) so successful and enjoyable. I can ***ure you that we have had nothing but good reports from all our guests - I suspect that you may well see some returning to Granada! Thanks once again,
Dear Theresa & Sonia, Words can't begin to express our gratitude for all your efforts in making the day we've dreamed about for 12 years a reality. Your patience and perseverance is amazing and we truly thank you from the bottom of our hearts. Yours sincerely
