Speechy create amazing wedding speeches for people around the world who want to add a special moment to their day. We’re a crack team of TV scriptwriters and work closely with our clients to craft speeches that are unique, witty and a bit blooming brilliant.
Having written for people such as Richard Hammond, David Mitchell, Sharon Osbourne, Dan Snow and Mel Giedroyc, we have a proven pedigree. We've been on the BBC Hotlist of Writing Talent and included on the Edinburgh TV Festival's 'Ones To Watch'. We know how to entertain an audience and craft speeches that are a little less ordinary. That's why we're 5 star reviewed on TrustPilot.
As well as working with grooms, best men and fathers of the bride, we also love working with brides, mothers of bride and best women, as well as helping couples write joint speeches (set to be a big trend this year).
We offer a range of services to suit any need and every wallet…
BESPOKE SPEECH SERVICE – You dream it. We write it. This service is for people who want to create an awesome memory. Delight guaranteed.
SPEECH EDIT –Whether you’re time-strapped or just can’t seem to nail it, we’re happy to take on the challenge. With our TV training we know how to knock your speech into spectacular shape.
SPEECH TEMPLATE – Designed to build a speech which is original, this is no ordinary wedding speech template. The template builds comedy into your speech without resorting to wedding gags and ensures it’s heart-warming without becoming clichéd.
DELIVERY MASTERCLASS - As ex TV directors we've directed celebrities, professional presenters and members of the public. With a Skype call, we can teach you the tricks of the trade and train you how to deliver a speech with confidence.
Excellent - great speech and service! The speech went really very well, a large number of "well done" after, even my wife and the children said it was good! My son said told me he was dreading it as he doesn't think I'm very good at speaking, (cheek!), but praised me afterwards. It was far better than I could have produced and interestingly I wasn't nervous as I knew the content was excellent and it would go down well. Thanks to Ed who wrote the content. I'll be back for the next daughter!
Speechy helped me with my wedding speech and the experience from end-to-end was incredible. Right from the start Heidi was so warm and encouraging. We spoke about what I was trying to achieve and she selected Claire, a writer from her team based on that. Claire was fantastic. She seemed to understand exactly what I was trying to communicate and shaped a speech that I was thrilled to deliver and got a lot of complements on the day. It was an absolute please working with Heidi and her team. I couldn't recommend Speechy highly enough. You won't regret using them.
The first thing we do when we start working with a client is get to know them. We need to work out what your dream speech would sound like before we start working on it. We do this by chatting to you and asking you to fill in a questionnaire. From our years working in telly, we know the right questions to ask to make sure we nail ‘your voice’ and find the right ‘treatment’ for your speech. We’ll inevitably have lots of great ideas to discuss with you & once we’ve found the one you love, we’ll start scripting your speech. A lot of our clients love our first draft but if it doesn’t quite sound like ‘you’ then we’re happy to keep working on it until we crack it and you can't wait to deliver it. Of course if you’re not completely delighted we’ll insist on giving you your money back (though this has never been necessary!)
We hate wedding ‘jokes’ too. We spent a LONG time designing our templates to make them very different to the standard ones on the market. They come with a ‘Content-Creator’ which is designed to get great material from even the most uninspired speakers. By gathering all the good stuff first, you can then use it to really personalise one of the three speeches formats we’ve written. Essentially our templates are a bit like having a TV scriptwriter hold your hand through the whole speech writing process (only a hell of a lot cheaper!).
We often get ‘emergency’ bookings (that we try to accommodate when we can) but we also take bookings for speeches six months in advance. We recommend people start working on their speech a couple of months before the wedding so book in asap if you want to work with us (we’re a small team so regularly get fully booked).
Joint speeches are officially A THING. Guests love them and it’s a great way for newlyweds to show they’re a proper, fully-functioning team. We work with couples to get the best out of both of them and help develop their double-act depending on the dynamic of their relationship. With some couples it’s obvious the bride is the ballsy one and the groom delivers the ‘ad libs’, whereas with other couples the delivery is split more evenly. We also ensure both parties keep a few of the sentimental lines back to deliver on the day, guaranteeing a bit of spontaneous loveliness.
Our Review Service is perfect for people who are happy(ish) with their speech but know it could be better. Our Review service is a bit like getting your teacher to check your work (well if they’re the BBC trained scriptwriter sort). We know the tricks and techniques to knock your speech into spectacular shape.
We work with your stories and your ideas, we just help you discover them. We would never put words in your mouth or suggest inauthentic sentiment. We simply help craft your thoughts and turn your #speechgoals into a reality.
