You've just landed the best man job - congratulations!

But are you starting to feel nerves creeping in?

Taking on the best man role is a great honour, but there's one aspect of the job that is almost certain to strike fear into even the most experienced public speakers: the speech.

You've probably stumbled across this website after desperately trawling the internet for inspiration.

But no doubt it didn't take too long to realise that sticking "best man speech" into Google throws up endless YouTube videos of blokes reeling off cringeworthy jokes and terrible one-liners you've heard at countless other weddings.

Those jokes weren't funny then and they certainly aren't now. In other words, you're probably not feeling any more inspired.

 
 

How I can help you

Working with words has played a big part in my career as a journalist, and with a decade's experience writing and editing I have developed a good nose for a story and know how to grab people's attention. 

A lot of the research and work that goes into crafting a top notch wedding speech isn't too dissimilar to writing an article you want to be read and shared by thousands of readers. 

As best man, the onus is on you to keep your audience entertained. But if the worry of pulling your thoughts together and writing a speech is leaving you feeling anxious about the whole experience, get in touch to see how I can help.
