Why SpeechMate?

Writing and delivering a speech at your daughter’s wedding can feel daunting. You’ve only got one shot to get it right and with a lot of things to cover, it can feel like a minefield. Which is why more and more people are choosing to get professional help when it comes to writing their speech. That’s where we come in.
Our team of speechwriters have written hundreds of wedding speeches and know what works. We’ll do all the hard yards so you can relax and focus on enjoying the day.


We take the time to get to know you and how you see the groom then tailor our words to reflect the relationship you share.


No best man internet jokes, you get a bespoke speech built from the bottom up. There’s no one else quite like you – we need to capture that.


It’s a day to let people know how you feel. We strive to get the sentiment and tone just as you want it – whether a full on tug of the heart strings or just a light pluck.


We’re used to deadlines, whether the wedding is two years away or two days. Left it to the last minute? There’s a lifeline available.

How it works


Purchase your bespoke speech, after which we’ll direct you to complete our online questionnaire. It covers all the basics as well as more personal questions about you, the groom and the memorable moments you’ve shared.


Receive a call from us. Typically, you’ll have given us plenty to work with, but we want to get as much detail out of your head and into ours as possible. So, we set up an informal chat to talk through your questionnaire and probe further. Then we get writing.


Receive your personalised, bespoke speech by the agreed date. Most clients are delighted with the first draft, but if not, we work with you to make any amendments until you are fully satisfied. If not, then we will give you your money back.

Frequently asked questions

Everything you need to know about SpeechMate

What do I need to include in my best man's speech?

After introducing yourself there’s a few people to thank, plenty of good natured fun to poke at the groom and some more heartfelt sentiment about what a great guy he is and why his new wife is the woman for him.

That varies depending on the audience, the trick is to be clever and original rather than crude and cliched. Affectionate jokes and stories about the groom’s well-known characteristics is generally safe ground.

Amendments are all part of the service – right up to the big day. So if inspiration hits you get back in touch and we’ll get back to work.

Most people aren’t natural public speakers but there are ways round this. We can offer advice and tips to put you at ease for the big day.

You give us the deadline and we meet it. If the wedding is some time off we can be a little more relaxed. If the wedding is this weekend we can do that too. The important thing is to make a plan and swing into action. Either way, sooner rather than later takes a weight off your mind.

 We sincerely hope this doesn’t happen and it is very, very rare. But if it does the amendment process goes as far as ‘rip it up and start again’. Should you still be unhappy we offer a full refund.
