Sure, same-sex marriages have only existed since 2014, but this is as close to a ‘traditional’ groom speech as possible.
A good balance between emotional and funny. Even when it looks like he’s going to get soppier, he manages to find something funny in some tough topics. He even manages to fit in a dig about Katie Price.
We like the way the speech starts, with a good list of the things he was told not to talk about and then doing the opposite. Plus he gets in an ‘on behalf of my husband and I’ which is an easy win EVERYONE should do.
Two small criticisms though, if we may. We at Speechy think you should maybe wait until after the speeches to hand out gifts, just because it slows it down. And secondly, it’s a little too long.
