Small cast iron rads to be fitted but existing pipework is 10mm fed from centre wall plate behind rad.
Any valves available to keep in line with the look of the rad? also need drainoffs as well.
Is this doable with speedfit pipe ?

Speedfit on show is a no no, sign of a DIYer.
You need to convert it to copper to look nice
If you must use 10mm copper to the TRV, then solder a 10x15 reducer on to the pipe to fit the valve
+1 and if you want it to look right then the copper feeds cant come from the centre wall plate. You'd need to channel the plasterboard and strapping to each end of the rad to allow the pipe to elbow straight out the wall to (depending on the look of the rads) a couple of antique corner TRV rad valves.
