Our Story

Best destination wedding planners in India

We, at Sketchknots, have been in the destination wedding planning league for the past 5 years now. Living our dream and crafting couples’ dream weddings to realities. By and large we have catered to the couples staying outside India who wish to go the desi way for their weddings. Having said that they don’t stay in India but their hearts & their roots belong here, gives a very unique character to the weddings – desi yet classy!

When we are not planning weddings, we follow our passion – our love for animals. Street animals don’t have an easy life these days and hence we are all dedicated to taking care of street animals. We aspire to shape this passion more meaningfully in the coming years, by etching out a portion of our earnings and developing a self-sustaining shelter for stray animals in Bangalore.

Our services come all together as a package and even on an à la carte basis. Based on what the client’s demands and resources are, we wear our wedding planner/professional advisor cap.

All I can say is, it’s easy to execute a beautiful wedding when the surroundings support you, but only an amazing wedding planner can help you with a wedding of your dreams irrespective of the environmental conditions.

Sonali & Varun

We don’t have enough words to describe how incredibly Annada and Manoj ran the show. We started off as getting a wedding planning service from Sketchknots but it was far from what a paid service is like. Together they are an amazing team who will wave their magic wand and make your dream wedding come true. You can always count on them.
