The Wedding Event with a Difference – Exhibitors Exposed! Introducing Darby & Joan
Who are you and what do you do?
Darby & Joan – a vintage hire & styling company based in Derbyshire.
We have vintage tableware for a formal wedding breakfast with up to 200 guests & can provide the vintage place settings for a relaxed afternoon tea party for up to 300 guests.
We can be as involved with your wedding as you wish us to be. Whether you are looking to hire our vintage china, or you would like us to provide the catering for your wedding or hen party (we offer a pretty delicious Afternoon Tea Menu) or you would like us to work with you on planning & styling your wedding – we can help.
The icing on the cake – we can staff & host your wedding too. Our girls are fabulously lovely, will be dressed in a tea dress finished with a vintage apron. They are discreet, friendly & we are very proud of our D&J girls.
It’s all about those little details!
What do you love about weddings?
Everything! The smiles, the emotions, families getting together, the excitement & the anticipation of all the preparation & planning coming together.
Why do you do what you do?
I have always had a real interest in interiors, fashion, good old fashioned design & love to be involved with event planning – whether that is helping a friend create their 30th birthday party or offering styling ideas for their wedding.
Launching Darby & Joan was a really easy decision as it is an extension of everything that I have a passion for.
It is a real privilege to be asked to be part of someone’s wedding day & I absolutely love it.
I work on Darby & Joan full time & am over the moon that we have had such a successful couple of years.
What can we expect from you and your stand at the Wedding Event with a Difference?
We are hoping to give brides & grooms lots of elegant styling inspiration for their wedding tables & venue & we will be showcasing some of our favourite table dressing ideas. We will be there to chat with couples about their aspirations for their day & to talk about putting together a bespoke package to suit their style & budget.
We are a friendly, personal & approachable company & we hope that our passion for what we do will encourage couples to consider using Darby & Joan for their day.
