Critiquing my site?

Hello,

I have just finished my first ever website in wordpress. I know it's not fantastic but this has been a bit of a playground for me. I was wondering if I could ask some people to take a look and give me an open critique of it as I feel this is the best way of improving. I hope this is the right place to post it.

Thanks in advance

Steve

Looks great! The only thing I would recommend is removing the extra space at the top. Besides that it looks amazing!

I would recommend putting some padding around the nav buttons.

Looks tasty. I'd stick some actual address/contact details on there (as well as the form) so you can be found/linked to from Google Maps etc.

Thanks everyone some good shouts. Have added padding around the nav's and also worked out how to shift the site up a bit more using php. I will get around to adding more contact details etc. However currently this is a non-business I have created as an incentive for a friend. He doesn't know I have made this site for him, but I am hoping if I get it set up properly then show him he might like to run it and see how well he can do from it. I have just stolen a few pictures from his facebook profile and did a little logo design and made a banner for him. I havn't actually set the contact form to work yet either as there doesn't seem much point until it is going to run as a business.

Thanks for your feedback everyone. If there is anything else anyone can think of please let me know.

Hey Stephen! Love the work and +1 for getting out there and sharing it with the community :)

My 1 suggestion would be put some extra love and attention into the gallery page, since that really shows off the cakes, I would have the gallery show larger images without having to click into the lightbox.

Congrats!
