Based in North London, I Am The Best Man is a speechwriting business that enables clients to be the best man at their friend's weddings.
Hi there! I'm Oliver :)
I'm married to Helene, we have a cat called Harry - he's somewhat temperamental but that's another story - and I write speeches. Professionally!
I've been a best man three times and an MC twice.
To be 100% honest with you, the first speech I ever gave was a total train wreck. Really. Probably not something to admit on a speech writing service you might think, but here's the thing...
After that traumatic –please swallow me up–experience, I decided I wouldn't make the same mistake again. Heck no.
From that point on, I was going to become a speech ninja! I would read every book. Watch every YouTube video. Go to Toastmasters. Take online courses. Dissect great speeches. I became obsessed with speeches and in the process, they became a passion. So much so, I started a website about it!
The thing is, I love writing speeches, and my tight-knit, highly-skilled ex-journalist team also love writing speeches.
We've been featured in publications including ShortList, The Gentleman's Journal and Esquire as guest experts in best man speech writing and we're here to write you a match-winning speech.
Get in touch using the form on the side and I’ll write back to you within 24 hours.
In the meantime, here are some questions you may have.
Why use a professional speech writer?
Writing and delivering a best man’s speech is daunting. You’ve got to be funny and charming enough to win over the entire wedding party. And you need to be edgy enough to win a laugh or two, without taking it too far.
There are some people there you know. Others you don’t. Finding the right balance is tricky.
And then there is wedding etiquette. What to say, what not to say, and in what order.
You know you’ve got to say some nice things about the happy couple but need to make it heartfelt rather than clichéd.
With all the people to please, writing the best man’s speech can feel like a bit of a minefield!
And it takes time too! Which busy people with families and commitments don’t have in abundance.
That’s where we come in.
We’ve seen the good, the bad and the ugly. We know the etiquette. We know the formula that works.
We’ll consult with you in person, use our experience of writing literally 1000s of speeches and ensure you’re placed you not just in the good camp but in the great, knock it out of the park, camp.

Put my mind at rest with the process right from the get go.
Managed to get my jumbled thoughts down into well crafted stories throughout a very humorous yet sincere best mans speech.
Can't recommend these guys highly enough and can't believe I'm saying this but I'm actually looking forward to deliver the best mans speech now !
