A bit of exciting news…

A little article copied over from the Derby Evening Telegraph…so so so so so excited to be involved in Kate Halfpenny’s wedding.  I can’t even begin to tell you how much.  Over the moon, thrilled beyond words, a little apprehensive, bursting with ideas, wishing the next few months away so it can be here…I sound like I’m the one getting married!!!! 

 Seriously, huge congratulations Kate & James on your wedding & see you both soon. 

 “Karen Eggleton,who used her vintage crockery collection as a basis for a business will be supplying one of Derbyshire’s highest-profile weddings next year.

Allestree-based Darby and Joan, run by Karen Eggleton, will be providing china for the marriage of celebrity stylist and bridalwear designer Kate Halfpenny.

  1. Karen Eggleton's business supplies vintage crockery.

The firm will provide a range of crockery from table settings to serving bowls for the 200 guests.

Mrs Eggleton said: “Kate is hugely respected in the wedding industry and so it is absolutely fantastic for me to work with her.

“She has lots of fabulous ideas for the wedding and loves the pieces that I’ve shown her.”

None of the crockery will match but will be made up of Mrs Eggleton’s collection of vintage English china.

It has been built up by visiting car boot sales, house clearances and auctions.

Derbyshire-born Miss Halfpenny has designed costumes for adverts for Pepsi, Ghost, Moschino and Hugo Boss and has styled George Michael, Kate Moss, Twiggy, Shirley Bassey and Pixie Lott.

Her wedding will take place in Derbyshire but as a number of high-profile celebrities will be attending, the location has not been disclosed.”
