So pleased that my speech went down so well. My daughter was quite emotional about what I said so that makes me feel like the speech set the right tone. The really funny stories were soon to follow with the Best Man speech. Now that can't be published here!

I wanted to do something a bit more "me" for my speech as public speaking makes me very nervous. I seemed to hit the right balance of humour and sincerity and was pleased with how it was received. The only thing I am not able to show here is that one verse was accompanied by photo of a scone... you'll just have to imagine that bit.

This was my second daughters wedding and this site helped me with the first speech, so I submitted that speech. The second speech was no easier to deliver but again this site helped. I found that by dividing a word document into 2 columns it allowed me to fold my speech in half and it was better than standing with a full A4 sheet of paper. If you know what you want to say, you will be able to fill in the gaps if you lose your place.  The audience are on your side. Deep breath and speak clearly and even if you do not feel it, confidently. Hope this one helps!
