Zankyou Weddings started in Spain in 2007 but has grown so large it’s now the most visited wedding website in the world. Zankyou recently came to India, and so far has made a number of dream weddings for Indian brides.
And it’s all possible via your smartphone. Imagine putting together a wedding like the Ambanis and the Mittals (same style but maybe not so much spend, we think) using your phone. And you won’t even have to take leave from work.

Zankyou features original content personalized for each potential bride, as well as an expansive directory and catalogue of information to organize every type of wedding. It has a presence in 23 countries, and they are the leading website in Europe and Latin America. Each year they have more than 50 million visitors on the Zankyou platform and over 350,000 registered couples.
Isabel Tesch is responsible for the international development of Zankyou. Born in Lübeck, a UNESCO heritage city in Germany, her prior stints include corporate beauty giant, L'Oreal. Isabel is responsible for making sure each Zankyou user has the ‘perfect wedding experience’. Open, entrepreneurial and positive, Isabel believes that weddings are momentous, deeply personal, emotional and meaningful occasions that require immense preparation.
Along with Isabel is Abhishek Shekhawat who handles the Indian market at Zankyou. He first moved to Spain in 2005 to discover everything the Spanish culture has to offer. Prior to that, he lived in South Africa working for Global Village at Plettenberg Bay, a top destination site for tourists. He has come to Zankyou from Joid’ Art, a contemporary jewellery portal where he spent many years as its manager of everything that is marketing.
The wedding portal is not all sugar and bubblegum flavored superficialities. Their back end is supported by a comprehensive layer of technology to offer tools for wedding organization. You can find vendors, create a wedding website on your own and create your own gift registry list, a RSVP feature guests can easily accept or decline invitation to online, and even a table setting options.
Only a bride would understand just how crucial these features are to ease a hectic countdown to D-day.
