The Lake Como Wedding Planner
The Lake Como Wedding Planner provided us with high quality, beautiful and inspirational imagery from their luxurious weddings, and as such the new website needed to showcase and complement these images. A modern, clean and elegant feel to the design lets these images take center stage as a main selling point, particularly for locations. With a high volume of customers viewing the website on a mobile device, the mobile design was just as important as the main desktop site. Regardless of device, the finished website has a refined look and feel, in line with the upmarket services that The Lake Como Wedding Planner has to offer.
Fully responsive technology ensures desktop and mobile device user experience is as pleasing as the visual design. The expandable CMS allows The Lake Como Wedding Planner to update text and imagery, and add increased services and wedding locations as their success continues. The SEO capabilities of the website enhance search engine rankings to target more customers. A bespoke two stage enquiry module also allows more information to be gathered about the customer, after enticing them in. Finally, a micro-wedding website is an extra touch of luxury for each couple; it provides information on location, activities, accommodation, RSVPs and even wedding photography to all of their guests.
