SpeechMate Founder & Speechwriter

Meet Oliver

Hey there! I’m Oliver, the founder behind SpeechMate. I’ve assisted hundreds of people in gearing up for their special day, contributed articles on speech delivery, and even shared my insights on the BBC regarding wedding speech preparation. Having delivered several best man and groom speeches myself, I totally get the nerves! Whether you’re aiming for edgy, witty, heartfelt, or a mix of everything, I’ve got you covered. I can help you with your perfect speech.

Meet Helene

Hi! I’m Helene. I love writing and I love weddings so this the perfect job for me. People are starting to realise that, beyond mere tradition, there’s no inherent reason why men should always be the ones to speak and so I’m delighted to be writing more and more wedding speeches for women. 

I love the process of getting to know the people I write for, your daughter, and the special bond you share. I dive into the sea of ideas swirling in your mind and craft a heartfelt, flowing speech that everyone enjoy.

Each speech is a unique opportunity to express ouselves

Chief Speechwriter

Meet Alex

Hello! My name is Alex and I’ve been a professional writer for more than 20 years – including speeches, for newspapers, internet sites, radio scripts, and personal commissions. This means interviewing people, getting to know them and telling their story is what I do for a living. Having been a best man three times (and a groom just the once), I know how important it is to get the speech just right and tailored perfectly.

“The whole process was slick and seamless. Alex was great from start to finish”
