I believe most professions are chosen from a place of talent, determination and luck, but for me, wedding and event planning chose me. I am Zenobia, founder of Blue Olive Events, obsessed with weddings and love stories and a complete perfectionist!
This creative journey started two years ago before I even decided on a business name, hence the reason it chose me. After a few months, my husband came with the idea of calling this venture, Blue Olive, as blue is my favourite colour and olives are practically staple food!
I am very focused on detail and getting things done, I even think I might have slight OCD! Getting you that dream day you’ve always desired is my greatest motivation for making everything look perfect.
I completed my diploma in Advanced Wedding Planning through the SA School of Weddings, where I learned the ins and outs of wedding and event planning. I believe this was mere the foundation of Blue Olive Events, as my experience and expertise are what will make this adventure extraordinary.
When I am not busy fretting over details, organising venue viewings or finalising the last few loose ends before your big day, you’ll find me at home with my husband, baking the best pancakes you’ve ever tried! On weekends we love exploring new places, enjoying good wine and friendly conversations.
Witnessing the union of two souls, the happiness and love that embraces new families and bringing them together is the pulse of Blue Olive Events and I cannot wait to witness your story too.

A lot of planning and hard work goes into creating the perfect wedding or event, but it is essential to also create a memorable experience together, enjoying the adventure and savouring these moments for a lifetime. Here is a short breakdown of my process and how I go to work, although I always keep in mind that each wedding and event is unique and will be managed in their different ways too.
