|A question about Mr. Darcy's reception of the Gardiners

Would have Mr. Darcy been as civil and accommodating with the Gardiners had Elizabeth not been there? Is his initial encounter with the Gardiners because he is doing this especially for Elizabeth or are the Gardiners such charming and elegant people, in spite of being 'low connections-in trade?' Is this a turning point for Darcy who discovers that Elizabeth indeed has some very fine family connections, even though they are not from Darcy's lofty realm?
Which leads to country manners. What is proper etiquette for two strangers to be welcomed to a grand estate such as Pemberley?
I ask because I feel so strongly about the pivotal nature of the Gardiners in their good fortune to personally re-unite Elizabeth and Darcy.
