Being the wife of an expat, this idea first came to me as event designer, Jessie Patton, and I were discussing poppies. Of course, brunch weddings are trending at the moment and we had already decided that we wanted to show off the British beauty of Bisham Manor with an afternoon tea wedding. The real Bisham Manor dates back to the middle ages before the reign of Henry VIII. Making this inspiration truly British was paramount. There are few things that are more British than castles and the red poppy.
