360 Virtual Studios have created a suite of Matterport tours and an interactive floorplan for this exclusive venue for wedding, parties and corporate events, set within a baronial mansion on a picturesque 1,100-acre estate near Edinburgh.
Despite having an outstanding reputation as an exclusive wedding venue, the problem for Newhall Estate was how to both realistically and informatively showcase their unique setting to an international client base. Additionally, as a luxury venue, our clients wanted to ensure their guests a seamless and hassle-free planning experience, without the need for multiple visits to the venue.
We created a suite of fully interactive Matterport 3D Tours of the main reception rooms and bedrooms and wove these tours into a bespoke, interactive floorplan, embedded on the Newhall Estate website. The result is a fully interactive and user-friendly means for guests to explore the space, at any time, from the comfort of their own home.
This technology has given couples the confidence to book our venue without seeing it in person. No time has this been more relevant or crucial than amidst the current pandemic.
According to Jak Kennedy, Director at Newhall Estate, the technology has been a “gamechanger” for their wedding business, particularly during lockdown 2020, which prevented on-site visits.
Matterport tours have also transformed their day-to-day business operation.
“The technology has also saved us time - couples no longer need multiple visits to check the layouts and measurements. It is all available online. In addition, the interactive floor plan has been a game changer for couples organising the sleeping arrangement for the main house.”
As well as saving prospective clients multiple site visits, saving the estate’s management time and money,
Matterport has revolutionised their online brand, with a more informative and enjoyable viewing experience for their prospective clients.
