Letter From Zoë
I must have been about seven years of age watching Franck in Father of the Bride. I remember the words, ‘Come with me please and we’ll talk all about your big day!' I was hooked, then and there I knew I wanted to live and breathe the world he was in and become a wedding planner.
And so began my interest and life long ambition to bring as much joy to others, through my love of design and events.
The crux of running the perfect event starts with being methodically organised. Everything has always matched and colour coordinated in my world to ensure maximum efficiency; and my diary is planned out each day down to the hour (if truth be told, some days, down to the half hour!)
On leaving Trinity College, with the decline in the Irish economy, which of course affected the events industry, I took the initiative to study PR at Fitzwilliam in 2008, an invaluable skill needed for event promotion. I moved over to London to Battersea Power Station to work as the PR Executive for a fixed-term six-month contract.
Six months turned into eight years, with three changes in site ownership and I had well and truly moved on from the PR world. Day to day I was designing, managing and executing not only the Events Strategy but the Commercialisation Strategy for the entire Battersea site. Essentially, I had turned what was a Brownfield underutilized site awaiting planning and development into an international events destination. During my seven and a half years of events, I organised events for every occasion: from small scale 2 person dinner, political events, high end engagements and weddings, product launches, gala dinners, all the way up to 38,000 people festivals.
Taking all of my experience I took the initiative to establish MBZ International; an events company where we pride ourselves on thoroughly understanding our clients’ expectations, meticulously planning down to the tiniest detail and executing to the highest standard of excellence to ensure a memorable, one of a kind experience every time. I also enlisted the services of Fitzwilliam one more time and got my Diploma in Wedding Planning.
Why call it MBZ International? Because every event is ‘Made By Zoë’ of course! Be it a proposal, an intimate engagement party, or large-scale product launch, we work as a team to always add that personal touch.
We are highly skilled at connecting ideas, individuals and organisations with opportunities to transform customer briefs into memorable, engaging and rewarding MBZ experiences. No MBZ event is the same; we take our clients ambition and turn it into a reality priding ourselves on design and detailed planning.
Thank you for choosing MBZ International.
What sets Zoë apart from other event planners is that she actually listens to what you envision for your wedding day and incorporates your ideas. We would not hesitate in recommending MBZ to other couples. Zoë ensured that we had the most enjoyable day possible and most importantly, her energy and enthusiasm for her work make her a joy to be around.

We have worked with MBZ multiple times and have found them great to work with. MBZ takes the stress out of the event, both planning and on the day. No ask was to big and complete professionalism was show at all times. I look forward to working with them again and recommend them to anyone planning an event.

Never underestimate just how much work goes into planning your wedding. Zoë from MBZ was a god send and took away all of the stress in the lead up to and on the big day. Her creative flair and attention to detail was invaluable as was her organisational skills. The day went without a hitch thanks to Zoë and her team and we’ll always be grateful that we got to really enjoy the day without having to worry about a thing.
– Simon Woodward
Couldn’t recommend Zoë highly enough. She was so professional and made the whole process stress free. She’s such an amazing eye for design! We told her want we wanted and she delivered on everything. Our day wouldn’t have been half as memorable if she wasn’t part of it.
Zoë is second to none. She is creative, detailed and professional. Zoë puts the client’s interest above all. Not afraid to roll up her sleeves and goes above and beyond what is expected. My entire engagement with MBZ international was friendly and pleasant. Zoë operates in an atmosphere that makes you feel as if you’re her only client. She made my overseas proposal absolutely worry free and unforgettable! I highly recommend speaking to Zoë for your event planning needs.

I was looking for someone to help coordinate my wedding as I lived in London and was trying to coordinate overseas. Zoë took all the stress out of organising, made my day so special, knew exactly what I wanted and delivered a top quality, high end service but without too much formally and she was such fun to work with. Absolutely pleasure to work with.

I found the staff at MBZ most helpful with the planning and organising of my wedding. Nothing was a hassle or a big deal and everything ran with such ease and what seemed like very little stress for me as the bride. They were great in helping with the decision making but also in providing lots of different options for us to choose from. We also had a lot of fun together which I loved. All my emails and questions were always answered within the same day which was probably my favourite thing overall about MBZ – and I had a lot of questions. Would highly recommend
– Ruth Keating
MBZ were incredible coming up to our wedding. Particularly Zoe. Zoe help me find exactly what we were looking for in a professional and efficient way,while getting to know us as a couple , our taste and the feel we wanted for our day. Zoe also made the day run so smoothly , all our guests commented on her amazing touches! ( I would have loved to take the credit but was all Zoe!) I would highly recommend the MBZ team.
– Blanche Burke
Having Zoe to plan our wedding was an absolute pleasure! It’s hard to describe in words how valuable the service provided by Zoe was but a few that spring to mind are; personal, efficient, helpful, honest, innovative & quite frankly amazing! We cannot speak highly enough of Zoe and her general meticulous organisation which meant Colin & I could really saver what was a truly awesome occasion, thoroughly enjoyed by all.
