Wedding

Lisa Fraser’s Top 7 Tips for planning your wedding

We’re counting down to the Royal Wedding over the coming week with Lisa Fraser’s Top 7 Tips for planning your big day inspired by Harry and Meghan.

Wedding Planning Tip #7: CHOOSING THE CAKE

Buck the traditional tiered fruit cake and choose flavoursome, seasonal ingredients such as lemon and elderflower with buttercream decorated with fresh flowers like Meghan.

Choose a local baker who prides themselves in food provenance and sustainability or why not ask a relative to bake your wedding cake for that personal touch?

Meghan cake

Wedding Planning Tip #6: HORSEPOWER

Six horses, Windsor Greys, will be included in the procession ride at the Royal Wedding. Arrival by horse and carriage is a wonderfully romantic touch and a beautiful horse makes for charming photographs in a rural setting.

Helen and Aaron (7)
Coldharbour Farm has several horses which can be part of your wedding day photography

Wedding Planning Tip #5: FLOWERS

Royal wedding bouquets contain at least one sprig of myrtle, a tradition which dates back to the wedding of Queen Victoria’s daughter Princess Victoria. Myrtle symbolizes hope and love, making it a fitting addition to any bride’s bouquet, royal or not.

Aside from the traditional blooms Meghan is expected to carry peonies down the aisle. They are said to be her favourite flower, and better yet, they’ll be in season.

Peonies will feature heavily in one of our upcoming client’s spring weddings. By using seasonal flowers your wedding will smell divine and you do your bit for the environment too!

Wedding Planning Tip #4: CHOOSING YOUR PHOTOGRAPHER

Meghan Markle booked Alexi Lubomirski, a prominent fashion and celebrity photographer for her engagement and wedding photographs following recommendation from a friend.

Always chose your photographer, in fact any wedding supplier, based on recommendation and meet them to see if you click before booking.

Style, talent and experience are important but personality is KEY as the photographer captures the joy of your wedding day and it’s important you feel comfortable.

Wedding Planning Tip #3: THE PROPOSAL

Ms Markle told last year how she could not wait to say “yes” to the prince when Harry got down on one knee as they cooked a roast chicken dinner at his home, Nottingham Cottage in the grounds of Kensington Palace.

Proposals don’t have to be grand affairs. It’s about choosing a situation that feels right for YOU.

Wedding Planning Tip #2: RELAX BEFORE THE BIG DAY

The weeks leading up to your wedding can be stressful with so much planning and last minute changes. Choose a venue with a bespoke wedding planner that can take all the stress away for you. Leaving you time to sit back and relax…

Wedding Planning Tip #1: PHOTOGRAPHY ETIQUETTE

As well as dress code, the Royal guest list also reportedly includes ‘critical guidance’ for the big day. The instructions ban cameras and bulky bags, adding that guests will be asked to “surrender mobile telephones and any devices used for image capture”.

Consider your stance on guest photography and add a social media policy to your wedding invites or website. Some couples choose to politely request no photography during the ceremony while others are happy with guests clicking away and even create their own hashtag for Instagram!

Reviews

Telegraph Travel: “Frasers is a foodie favourite!” 

The Telegraph Travel ventured over to Frasers for an overnight stay, 7-course taster menu, afternoon tea and stroll around the farm in November.

Rating Frasers 8/10 journalist Gabriella Le Breton wrote: “This eponymous restaurant, eight-room guesthouse and wedding venue, set in the heart of the Kent countryside on Adam and Lisa-Jane Fraser’s farm, makes for a delightfully rural escape. Serving exclusively locally grown, shot and sourced produce, it’s fast becoming a foodie favourite.”

Frasers Wins British Farming Award

Gold Diversification Large square.png

Award-winning restaurant with rooms and boutique wedding venue Frasers of Egerton has won the British Farming Award for ‘Large Farm Diversification and Innovation 2017’. Situated in an idyllic location in the heart of the Kent countryside between Ashford and Maidstone, the family-run business has gone from strength to strength since diversification in 1990.

“The British Farming Awards represents the pinnacle of achievement for ‘on farm’ diversification initiatives, championing the best in their respective fields. The judging panel rigorously checked all aspects of the business and my team and I are incredibly proud to come out on top – it is truly an achievement,” commented Lisa-Jane Fraser, Owner of Frasers.

Nicholas Hunt, Head of Agriculture for Santander, informed Frasers that the judging panel were impressed by the business’ long term sustainability and viability – one of the deciding factors in their decision. The British Farming Awards recognises the innovation and determination that is present in today’s ever-changing farming industry.

Frasers grew organically when they began converting redundant farm buildings in the 1990’s to luxury accommodation.  Lisa then commenced cooking with locally sourced produce to cater for parties and weddings. The idea of Frasers was born following demand from accommodation guests for high quality local produce. A redundant dairy milking parlour was demolished and in its place a state of the art commercial kitchen and adjacent oak framed Kentish barn was constructed. From opening in 2008 Frasers of Egerton has become increasingly successful resulting in multiple award wins including the AA 2 Rosette Restaurant.

Lisa-Jane Fraser added, “We are delighted to receive this prestigious award. Frasers is incredibly proud of being a small, family-run Kent business with a great team of staff who work hard to ensure that the high standards for the AA 2 Rosette Restaurant are met and maintained. To be recognised for this is such a boost to the Frasers team. We are excited about our future and are very much looking forward to another successful year.”

Lisa-Jane Fraser is a judge for the British Farming Awards 2018. To find out more about the awards visit www.britishfarmingawards.co.uk/
