Event photography with Z6II + the focus assist light

I'm looking for advice from event photographers who use the Z6II and shoot with on-camera flash in low light situations like weddings, mitzvahs or night parties.

The camera seems to perform well with some available light but it's not great when there's none. Achieving focus seems even more challenging in a vertical position as my left thumb blocks the assist light. This is kind of a design flaw, no?

I'd really appreciate hearing from event photographers. Will I need to go back to my D750 when there's low-light? Any advice on methods and focus modes appreciated.

Also, I can't add a vertical grip, as I need to lighten my load. TIA
