The Project Brief

An exclusive country house and one of the most beautiful wedding venues in the country, Gorcott Hall is a 16th-century grade II* listed Tudor hall, only available for a small number of exclusive use weddings, parties and events each year. Gorcott Hall retains its charm with original timber beams, wonderful open fireplaces and sumptuous dècor.

Having worked with Adrian and his team for a number for years on other projects, he knows what we are capable of so when it came to creating a new site for this fantastic wedding venue, he was confident we could create something a bit different to stand out from the crowd.

Based entirely in WordPress, this widget-based site has a horizontal scroll mechanism developed by us which enables the user to ‘slide’ the site from left to right either by tapping if using a mobile, touchscreen device or by clicking a mouse. What we’re really proud of is how well the layout translates to mobile devices – looking just as good on a smartphone as a large desktop screen.

Responsive Web Design

Effectively taking the layout of a double page spread, our design creates a feel similar to flipping the pages of a brochure.

UI Development

The automatic scroll had to be smooth and accurate so some neat javascript was required.

Site Population

All the imagery and content was supplied to us via dropbox, a few weeks later and voila!
