We love working with people like Karen at Darby and Joan. A perfectionist and someone who truly understands effortless style, Karen’s business has grown from strength to strength since we met her over three years ago and now she is the proud winner of the East Midland’s wedding industry award – Best Venue Stylist. Very much deserved, this accolade just goes to show how professional and creative Karen’s service is.

So, when she approached us to discuss a photo shoot she was planning to launch her beautiful VW campervan, Dolly, we couldn’t wait to share it with you. So, without further ado, here is Karen to tell you more:

Their new addition arrived this summer and they have been dying to show her off in these pages.  Introducing Dolly  – a beauty of a 1966 split screen who loves a good wedding.  If you would like to arrive at the church in style, then get in touch with her via
