Arrive in Style

There’s so much to organize from dresses to guest lists and wedding and reception venues. But the journey to your wedding is equally as important

kerrington's insight:

Indian weddings are a colorful and vibrant celebration that can last for several days. Even the pre-wedding ceremony is an elaborate affair. Indian marriages can either be the traditional arranged marriage, or the more modern love marriage, which can be found within urban areas and smaller towns. Either way, an Indian wedding is filled with ritual and customs and can also incorporate some of the western traditions, such as the first dance, wedding cake and speeches. 

 

Indian brides are conventionally associated with wearing the Sari, typically worn in vibrant red, orange or pinks. But in a country of such diverse cultures and religions, each can have their very own unique style and rituals. The women are adorned in henna and gold jewellery with spectacular hair pieces with jewels and sparkling gems, oozing a mesmerizing beauty.

 

There’s so much to organize from dresses to guest lists and wedding and reception venues. But the journey to your wedding is equally as important. More traditional modes of transport are a vintage car, a horse and cart, a limousine or even an elephant. But if you are looking for the perfect way to arrive in style at your chosen venue, a wedding Indian rickshaw is the ideal way of transporting you from home to the venue. Originating from Asia, these rickshaws traditionally seat two people and can be lavishly decorated to meet the theme of your wedding, in royal reds or bright yellows. Whichever style you are looking for, the rickshaws can be tailored to your taste.

 

Indian Rickshaws or auto rickshaws are common in cities and towns across India and provide a quick and efficient of exploring the country and are often the most common method to travel, with reasonable fares, controlled by meters. These can offer an enchanting and unique alternative to traditional wedding transport. So why not bring a flavor of India to your own wedding? Your rickshaw can be transformed from a simple vehicle to a stunning chariot to take the happy couple to and from the venue. Not only will you be the envy of onlookers but you will experience the enjoyment of a relaxing, comfortable ride, taking in the sounds and sights of the streets of London before the biggest moment of your lives.

 

But it’s not just the bride and groom that require escorting to their magical day. Family and other guests may also want to travel in the same theme, although traditionally the groom travels on a white horse with his entourage following behind, dancing. The wedding party can even walk alongside the Indian themed rickshaw as you make your way to your wedding or reception venue.

 

So why not add a unique flavor to your wedding day. What a perfect way to arrive at your wedding and one that will leave your guests with an even more memorable experience of your beautiful day.

Bicycle tours and games of football are plentiful

Once you have ascertained his tastes, give him the encouragement that he needs to read. Find something that will stimulate his imagination and hold his attention. Essentially this is stage is the equivalent of being on top of an absailing wall.

kerrington's insight:

I had just discovered the art of leaving my body to sit impassive in a crumpled up attitude in a chair or sofa, while I wandered over the hills and far away in novel company and new scenes...  My world began to expand very rapidly,... the reading habit had got me securely.

H. G. Wells

 

 

How to get a boy to read, that is the question. What can the humble book offer him, in a world where video games, bicycle tours and games of football are plentiful? The most important is to determine exactly what it is that he likes. The trick is to encourage a boy’s imagination, which is stimulated by the former, whilst also giving him material to expand his horizons. Books like those by Terry Pratchett do a good job of combining the two, as do a number of others.

 

Once you have ascertained his tastes, give him the encouragement that he needs to read. Find something that will stimulate his imagination and hold his attention. Essentially this is stage is the equivalent of being on top of an absailing wall. He will no doubt enjoy his experience once he’s started and he’ll be sure to come again, but you need him to make that jump. This is where the majority of your support should go, ask him: does he want to climb the peak of a huge mountains, fight dragons, wrestle trolls in the dimly lit forests of myth and magic, feel the power of the elements sweeping through him as he banishes the darkness and save the kingdom? Or perhaps he would rather save the girl, capture the bad guy and foil his evil to block out the sun and plunge the planet into eternal night. Or maybe he just wants to relax, to escape the inner city where he lives and imagine himself sweeping through the rolling hills on one of many bicycle trips with his family.

 

You’ll need to spend the time to make sure that the first book is something that he wants to read, and something that captures his imagination. I would advise taking a paragraph or two from, say, six books across three different genres and then giving them to him. Go through them with him one by one, so it doesn’t seem daunting. Ask him after he has finished reading: did he like it? if not find out why not and go from there. Style is just as important as genre here, something people tend to overlook. LotR and Eragon for example tread very similar ground but whilst one ambles along, the over zips over it.

 

Obviously, this is a long process and it may be more attention than you are able to give to an individual child. If that is the case, then don’t worry; it may be all about fostering imagination, but ordered process will help you achieve that on a wider scale. A few hours work would easily produce these 6 extracts on say 3 laminated pages of A4, each with a different genre. You could have, say, Fantasy, Modern (Alex Rider etc) and Situation (Flat Stanley).

The method of outdoor media is the king of all advertising

However, there are alternative options for advertising, that are not so intrusive, but yet, are still effective.

kerrington's insight:

The media and world of advertising is forever expanding, and sometimes it’s hard to keep up. Society is made up of advertising and some would say its what makes the world go round. But forget the adverts on the web, television and magazines. Advertising has been around since ancient times, where Egyptian pharaohs would stencil their names on temples and use papyrus to send sales messages and wall posters. This was also very popular in Ancient Rome and Ancient Greece. This method of outdoor media is the king of all advertising, and companies who become embroiled with the latest forms of technology should not forget the basics.

 

It is predicted that in years to come advertising is going to become highly interactive. When watching your favourite television programme your remote control will be able to request more information, or even buy the product advertised during the break. It seems it will no longer be a one-way communication method just delivering a message. Some say this form of advertising is a step too far, a forced infringement, an invasion. If people want to buy something they will buy it and do not need pressurising, pretentious, interactive adverts in the comfort of their own home.

 

However, there are alternative options for advertising, that are not so intrusive, but yet, are still effective. For instance, an outdoor advertising company can help businesses to receive new interest from their unique and eco-friendly method of outdoor advertising. Whilst it is important to keep up to date with other formats such as social networking sites, it is always efficient to remember the basic techniques and remember how it all began.  After all, it has worked all this time. Advertising requires creativity and imagination. Visual advertising that includes witty puns or outstanding images (whether they be admirable or graphic),are going to be noticed. Whilst this is only one format of advertising, the printing world is slowly dying due to the mass development of online expansion.

 

London is the third most expensive city on the planet after Monte Carlo and Moscow. Two million people travel into zone one every single day and 90 % of them use public transport. London Waterloo train station sees 82 million on and off its platforms every year, and the London Underground carries 1,170 million people a year. The capital is a dream for all advertising and with 50 theatres in the West End alone, 4,500 pubs and bars, forty three universities, numerous retail parks and thousands of billboards, buses, trains, tubes, taxis, and rickshaws, it is a playground for companies who want to get their brand out there, attract their target audience and be one step ahead of competitors. The outdoors is what people see and where people go. So it’s no wonder outdoor advertising is the most successful.
