My background is in retail. I gained a degree in Retail Management and worked for a number of years in retail design and project management, merchandising and space planning.
After having children, I wanted to work from home and utilise my skills in a different industry – so as a result of planning my own wedding and those of some of my friends and family, I started to form a new idea.
Recognising a gap in the market, I launched my own business and Weddings By Zoë Ltd. was born – I now organise weddings and events throughout South Wales and the South West of England and also have a successful venue management arm to the business, supporting local wedding venues by running weddings on their behalf.
Due to the increased level of demand for unusual and beautiful decor for weddings and corporate events, I have now created a corporate event styling business with a business partner called Serayah Bespoke Event Styling, which is one of a kind in Wales, introducing styling décor not before seen in Wales.
