Re: website update

I have a issue with the position of the video during playback, I have a big black border on top in the video previewwindow and the bottom part is pushed outside the frame.

Re: website update

I like the overall flow and aesthetic. Here are my notes:

People like myself with astigmatism don't do white text on dark background well.
There is nothing in your header to indicate where you are (it's also kind of buried on the 'who we are' page). I'm also fond of contact info available on every page.
There is also no option to go back to the front page.

Re: website update

I like that it's slick & isn't just another WordPress website. I hate the sound effects & music. It also took an age to load.

A whole different non-Flash website with test menus & "Lorem ipsum" dummy data is displayed on iDevices.

I just had a look with my iPad, and as Nigel said, it is a test page with 'Loren Ipsum' text and a few pictures ???

Re: website update

Paul, as already noted it take a looooong time to load, and there is a black bar at the top of your samples.

One of the issues with sound effects is a bride trying to view you from work can get busted by her supervisor for looking at wedding stuff during working hours, the sound effects will cause her to leave your site immediately. A lot of brides will do this research during working hours, so it's important to think about.
