Everyone loves to be individual & to create a wedding or a party that is a little bit different. We have vintage tableware for a formal wedding breakfast with up to 200 guests. 

Whilst we are able to cater for large events, we would love to hear from you even if your party is for a small group.  We do ask for a minimum guest list of six.

We are more than happy to put you in touch with previous happy clients who have been over the moon with our service over the past four years if you wish. 

Personal recommendations are so important as there are a few companies offering a similar service to us, but we are very confident that our experience & expertise sets us apart. 

Waitress Service & Hosting your Event

The icing on the cake – we can staff & host your event too.  Our girls are fabulously lovely, will be dressed in a tea dress finished with a vintage apron & we are very proud of our D&J girls.  Please get in touch for further information.

A typical Darby & Joan wedding which is based on 50 guests can start from as little as £1,350.  This includes all of your vintage china hire, our classic afternoon tea menu, dressing your venue and tables and a staff of three for nine hours.


Styling your event

We love to style & dress a venue.  Whether you are planing a simple event & need a little help, or you are organising an elaborate wedding for 200 – our table dressing & venue styling service is for you. 

We are very proud winners of the 2014 Wedding Industry Award for Best National Venue Stylist.


Our styling is carried out with flair, creativity & a real love of what we do.  We will work with you to ensure your event is stress free for you & your guests, leaving you to sit back & relax, knowing you are in good hands.
