The Wedding Website

Thorpe Lodge is a beautiful farmhouse wedding venue located in Wartburg, Kwa-Zulu Natal, South Africa. It is family run and has heaps of experience when it comes to fine dining, attention to detail, immaculate food and days to remember. They asked to create a simple website for them so that they could be easily found on the web as well as come up in the search results for those looking for a wedding or catering services in the area.

Our goal for the website was to create something attractive and elegant to match the aesthetic of a classic wedding, which we achieved by using liberal whitespace, crisp imagery and appropriate typography. Just as importantly, the site needed to be easy to navigate and up front with with information. Couples looking into wedding venues have a ton of questions they need answered before they can decide on a venue. With a simple page layout and always present menu, it is easy for users to find what they are looking for.
We needed to be very explicit with the location to the farm as it is deep in the countryside, so it includes directions, our own personally crafted map and a Google maps link just for safe measure.

The website continues to attract couples looking for wedding venues in a highly competitive wedding area of South Africa, as well as corporate functions, and the highly acclaimed Lavish evenings once a month (for which we also designed a logo for).
Lavish is a bi-monthly evening of exquisite dining held at the charming Thorpe Lodge
