Heidi worked as a TV Producer for over a decade, writing scripts for people such as Richard Hammond, Dan Snow, Sharon Osbourne, Adrian Chiles, David Mitchell, Christine Bleakley and Mel Giedroyc.
She decided to set up Speechy after going to a few too many weddings where the speeches were appalling (one best man went on for 45 mins despite the heckling and another drunken best man double-act got asked to cut it short by the mum-of-the-bride).
After giving her own bride speech, she realised that a good speech had the potential to add an awesome moment to the wedding day. She also realised it was one of the few areas of wedding planning where brides and grooms lacked quality resources and help. She decided to recruit some fellow scriptwriters and Speechy was born.
Whilst juggling two little lunatics in primary school, she’s grown the business and now has a client base reaching around the world. Unlike a lot of wedding speech experts, Heidi is keen to ditch the outdated etiquette, powerpoint presentations and wedding-speech-‘humour’ that’s ruined so many speeches over the last decade.
