August 6, 2013

With her warm and caring nature and off-beat sense of humour, she'll answer every question with knowledgable insight and understanding to help and inspire or simply restore your peace of mind.


My father died a few years ago so my mum is giving me away. However, my oldest brother is giving a speech on her/my fathers behalf but we’re not sure what he should say.


We have various features and tips on speeches that I hope will give your brother a helping hand. Here are a few things he could talk about:

Amusing stories and anecdotes about you as a child,

What you are like as a person, kind, funny etc.

Welcome your partner into the family

Raise a toast to the two of you.

It’s lovely that he’s making a speech, and the main thing is that he should enjoy it and speak from the heart. It’s certain to be well-received by all your guests.
