Groom speech  - absent friends

Groom speech - absent friends

8th December 2021
I've written for pretty much every single type of wedding scenario and family make up you can imagine. Every time I speak to a client who warns me their particular situation is going to be uniquely challenging, I brace myself for a story I've hear...

Father of the bride speech - it's all about length

4th December 2021
There are a few key areas to a speech that will dictate its success, and whilst structure and great writing are obviously important, nothing really determines the outcome of a speech more succinctly than its length. If everyone kept an eye on the ...

Best man speech - New Year's Eve

30th November 2021
So, as we approach the festive season there are plenty of reasons to be jolly. It's party time around the world, you'll have a few days away from work after what has been another odd year, and you'll get to catch up with friends and family. Howeve...

Best Man Speech - Father to Son

25th November 2021
In times gone by, the best man role was usually handed over to a brother, or a good friend, and whilst that's still largely the case, things are changing. It's not unusual for it to now be the responsibility of anywhere up to 4 friends, 3 brother,...
Groom Speech - groomsmen or ushers?

Groom Speech - groomsmen or ushers?

22nd November 2021
I think it's fair to say that these days we all live in a fairly homogenous world, and languages in any country reflect a blend of many others. In France they 'enjoy' their very own brand of Franglais, which features words like jogging, brunch, an...

Father of the bride speech - less is more

16th November 2021
Whenever I'm writing a speech, I'll always be thinking of how to keep it as efficient as possible; after all why use 3 sentences when one will do the trick? A classic mistake in so many speeches is to say the same thing but in several different wa...

Groom speech - a question of gifts

Father of the bride speech - short and sweet?

4th November 2021
When it comes to public speaking, the way I like to look at it is: nobody normal likes standing up in front of a lot of people and talking out loud. If you're not prepared, it's nerve wracking, intimidating and can cause sleepless nights. The adde...
Best man speech dilemma - naughty or nice?

Best man speech dilemma - naughty or nice?

1st November 2021
I have long since come to realise that there are only two types groom: those that are very naughty, and have racked up multiple stories about their exploits over the years, and those grooms who are so nice and boring, they've racked up precisely n...

Groom speech - how to handle the best man

28th October 2021
Traditionally the best man can be a bit of a loose cannon. He's the guy you've selected to celebrate you in just the right way, probably a lifelong friend or brother, but deep down you're not too sure if he's going to over step the mark.  A large ...
Best man speech - a harsh lesson?

Best man speech - a harsh lesson?

23rd October 2021
I recently heard back from a client I was writing for that said that a particular line in the best man speech, and I quote 'wasn't harsh enough for his humour'. This is symptomatic of the approach that so many best men take, and that's thinking th...
