Wedding Speeches

Need help with your wedding speech?

One of the highlights of any wedding day are the speeches. However, it's also an incredibly hectic time for those involved and finding time to write that touching, witty and memorable speech can seem a bit daunting. Which is where I come in...


So, to avoid writing your speech on the back of a napkin during the pudding, why not let me take the reins, and I can take all the pressure off you? I can even give you tips as to how best to learn and deliver the speech. 

The process is simple. You can either email or call me, and we can discuss what kind of speech you're looking for. If you wish to go ahead, I will then send you a questionnaire which is designed to get all the information I need to write your bespoke speech. When filling in the questionnaire, the rule of thumb is simple. The more information, colour and stories (not all of them have to be embarrassing!) I am given by the client, the more I can work with. 


A bit about me - I've been working as a freelance writer for over 23 years, and writing wedding speeches for the past six years.


As a professional writer I've worked with comedians such as Al Murray, Jimmy Carr, Lenny Henry, Joan Rivers, Jason Manford, Matt Forde and many more. I've also worked on numerous TV shows, including Danger Mouse (He's asked me to write his best man speech when Penfold meets the right hamster).

"Matt helped me with my wedding speech, He's a very good writer and a very nice guy." - Tom

“For someone well into his middle age and who has never had to give an after dinner speech the thought of this was quite daunting. However I shouldn’t have worried. With the help of Mathew in structuring the speech what could have been an overwhelming occasion was made almost relaxing” - Mike 

"Matt was great at molding and adapting the speech to the occasion. He helped take the stress out of it and gave me confidence that everything would go well on the day." - Robert

"Matt is one of those people that can take the most muddled of mundane and turn it into a story - from a chat over a cup of tea on a Sunday morning he produced the most amazing of father of the bride speeches - funny, touching and memorable - yet made it sound as if it were written by the Father of the Bride himself.

His ability to pick put small details and tease out a story from an emotionally repressed northerner was so very much appreciated - except maybe by the Best Man who followed afterwards with a far too long, ripped from the internet repost, delivered badly ...

If I needed the help of a thought straightener/mind mining speechwriter again I would go straight back to Matt - whilst the line about the 'middle class mafia hit' didn't make it into the final version (for proprieties sake) I still cant go past a Waitrose without chuckling." -  Andrew

"Thank you very much for a fantastic speech! So witty, I'm so happy with it" - Alex

"Wow! It's superb, I love it and grateful for the quick turnaround." - Gareth
