Look Who’s Talking: How To Nail The Wedding Speech

January 29th, 2014 | Julia Braime

Our lovely guest blogger Rachel’s back this afternoon with more pearls of wisdom, all because she wants your wedding speeches to be memorable for all the right reasons.  Don’t forget to raise a glass to her too!

Rachel says:  Although I’m currently as close to getting married as Justin Bieber is to winning a role model of the year award, it’s a growing concern of mine just how my Dad will manage to hold it together long enough on my wedding day to make a speech.

Basically he’s an emotional guy – he’s been known to cry over Forest Gump (forgivable), waving my 19-year-old brother off on his two-week holiday to Thailand recently caused him to blubber, even a beautifully cooked steak sandwich has been known to reduce the man to tears (I kid you not).

Hypothetical talk of my wedding day is another catalyst of emotion for my Dad. It’s therefore no surprise that I worry how he will fare when it comes to delivering his farther-of-the-bride speech – a duty that has caused even the sternest of fathers to well-up.

As the only daughter I would never take the privilege away from him – I know he’ll make a wonderful job of it (no matter how many boxes of Kleenex he goes through in the process), but this trail of thought did get me thinking about who else I might like to speak at my wedding.

Lee Brown Photography

Traditionally speeches are delivered after the wedding breakfast by the father-of-the-bride, the groom and the best man, but as couples continue to shake up formal proceedings, speeches are taking place at different times of the day and are being delivered by different people.

A popular new addition is inviting the father-of-the-groom to deliver a speech. Witnessing a child tying the knot is a big day for any parent whether it’s a son or daughter taking their vows. As such mothers-of-the- bride/groom are also taking to the stage.

Peter Boyd Photography

To me, those picked to speak at a wedding should be the people who know the bride and groom best, both before and during their relationship. As well as a parent, it’s a nice idea for a grandparent sibling or friend to be invited to say some words too. Admittedly there needs to be a short-list, not all those nearest and dearest can contribute but speeches given by people who know the couple in different capacities gives a well rounded overview of the new Mr and Mrs that all guests can relate to.

Another change to note is the rise of the bride’s speech. After all ladies why wouldn’t we want the opportunity to thank our loved ones, speak kindly of our new husband (oh and have the right to reply to any cringe-worthy stories delivered at our expense).

JB Creatives

Much to the relief of many people’s digestion systems, speeches are often now planned to take place before, rather than after the wedding breakfast. Whether it’s outside during the welcome drinks or prior to the sit down meal, this enables all to relax and enjoy without struggling through courses with their stomach in knots.

Whoever you choose to do the honours, here are a few quick tips for a spectacular speech:

Plan In Advance

I’ve actually seen people leave their speeches until the last minute and try to wing it, I’m yet to see this done successfully. The nerves on the day are enough to contend with without piling on the pressure by having to make up a speech on the spot.

Practise

Those who plan and practise in advance often deliver the best speeches, whether they provoke tears, laughter or a combination of the two. Rehearsing will give those not used to speaking in public the opportunity to build confidence whilst running their speech passed others to gain feedback.

Stott & Atkinson

Make Notes

Engaging with the audience is key to delivering a good speech so don’t bury your head in a piece of paper and read out your prepared speech word-for-word. Instead try to come across more conversational, get the main parts in your head ahead of the big day then have a few clear notes to hand during your moment in the limelight to ensure you don’t miss anything, or anybody, out.

Be Aware Of Your Audience

The last thing any wedding couple wants is a speech that warrants a #awkward or #cringe tag. While embarrassing stories, dating anecdotes and hen/stag do memories can add a humours element, speakers should consider if they are likely to upset or offend. Particularly bear in mind children, older relatives and protective parents.

Andy Wardle

Andy Wardle

Make It Memorable

Incorporating photos, videos or props in a speech can help to make it all the more memorable. It might be a souvenir from the hen do, a video message from someone unable to make the wedding day or a montage of childhood photos but whatever you choose don’t forget to take it with you on the big day.

Finally, remember the tissues – God knows I’m going to need them at my wedding!

Real Wedding Recap Winter 2013: Ferret Racing, Stuffed Giraffes & A Johanna Hehir Gown For A Fun & Fabulous Real Wedding – Carla & Jonny

December 22nd, 2013 | Julia Braime

Its holiday season here on the blog, and as the team take a break until to rest and recharge for what’s set to be the biggest and best year yet at Brides Up North HQ, we’ll be leaving you with a reduced blogging schedule so that you still get your daily dose of wedding pretty.

Usual service will recommence on 2nd January 2014,  but in the meantime watch out for recaps of our favourite Real Weddings in 2013.  Drop in every day for the very, very prettiest wedding inspiration and if you are a Brides Up North bride, to see if your Real Wedding was one of our top picks. 

Peter Boyd Photography

Ok, ok. hands up, this wedding isn’t ‘Up North.

I’m normally super strict with my submissions, but I’ve a free pass to publish Carla and Jonny’s fantastical and fabulous Real Wedding this morning (yes, even though it’s in the Cotswolds!) as it comes to us via Brides Up North Featured Supplier Peter Boyd Photography and their online competition – featured on these pages – for one lucky couple to win their wedding photography completely free.

Carla and Jonny got lucky – as did Pete, as he and Kelly got to shoot their absolutely stunning big day in this brilliant location.   I’m feeling pretty lucky to share it here today with you.  Be inspired!

And if there’s any beef at all on the geography thing – one of the ferrets is a Mancunian.  So there.

Carla says:  Jonny proposed on Hampstead Heath on 23 September 2012 and we were married on 15th August 2013 at Aynhoe Park.

We really loved the fun, quirky feel to the place, and loved the idea of a house party atmosphere at the reception. And they did ferret racing…

We tried to make each element of the wedding as personal to us as possible.  There was no real colour scheme but a lot of navy blue and splashes of pastel pink.

I chose a 1950s style dress from Johanna Hehir in Marylebone, London.  It had an organza skirt with a lace bodice. It was light and easy to walk in! I wore some bubblegum pink vintage Miu Miu shoes to add a fun touch!

Jonny, the best man and my dad wore simple slim navy blue suits, white shirts and pale blue ties. Jonny wore his dad’s shoes as a memory of him on the day.

The two bridesmaids (my sisters) were both heavily pregnant and wore Grecian navy blue maternity dresses from ASOS – I made sure I was flanked by people who made me look thinner!

Groomsmen wore navy suits, slim navy ties, white shirts and navy blue braces.

I carried a vintage pastel bouquet of ivory and pink roses, freesias, lisianthus, wild daisies, eucalyptus, hydrangeas. 

We tried to involve our friends and family as much as possible – my sister Anna did all of our flowers, our best friend Stan provided beer from his family’s brewery (Rebellion Brewery) and two of our ushers managed the music.

Peter Boyd Photography

The church and venue are next door to each other, so we didn’t need much transport. Jonny and his brother/best man arrived in his brother’s prize possession – his Porsche. I walked over to the church with my dad and bridesmaids (We stayed at the venue the night before).

We used Aynhoe Park’s recommended caterer, Indulgence, for the food – they were fantastic (especially the popping candy strawberry cheesecake and late night fish finger sandwiches!)

Our table plan was Scrabble themed – all our guests had to unscramble anagrams of their names to work out where they were sitting.

Peter Boyd Photography

On the tables were gingerbread men with each person’s name on (for anyone who didn’t manage the anagram!). These were baked by our friend, Sarah.

Our favours were mini apothecary bottles of limoncello (for the girls) and Hungarian palinka (for the boys). The palinka was brought back from Hungary by our usher Jules, who then flavoured the spirit with apricots (Aynho is known as “the apricot village”).

Peter Boyd Photography

Peter Boyd Photography

Our usher Alex managed our video diary room, which was our take on a traditional guest book.

Peter Boyd Photography

Peter Boyd Photography

In particular, the speeches were brilliant! My dad did a slideshow of horrendously embarrassing photos from throughout my life – and he even resurrected some notes I’d written as a child (“Them Smarties made my day”). 

Walking in to dinner as a married couple was really amazing.

Peter Boyd Photography

In the late afternoon we played cricket in the grounds – only a couple of injuries, and I managed to bowl Jonny out!

The main attraction was a ferret racing event, with Jonny’s brother Alex as the resident bookie! Each ferret had a name – i.e Madferret (the Mancunian), Ferret Across the Mersey, Ferret O’Rocher and so on…

In the evening we had a band – The TwentySomethings – who played two sets of everything from motown to modern classics. They also played a medley of Israeli music, to which our Jewish friends threw us around on chairs, table cloths etc!

OnCafe did our “cake”, which was actually a tower of flavoured petits choux. The flavours were peanut butter, salted caramel, raspberry crème and citrus crème.

Peter Boyd Photography

For our honeymoon we went Greek island hopping – Santorini, Folegandros and Spetses.

Peter Boyd Photography

My top for other Brides Up North would be to forget about what people expect from a wedding and strip back your day to the things you really want.

Get as many friends and family involved as you can – not only to cut costs but to make the day as personal as possible.

Peter Boyd Photography

 

Congratulations Carla & Jonny!

Frightfully Fabulous. Did You Get Spooky At #WeddingHourLive? A First Look

October 28th, 2013 | Julia Braime

Peter Boyd Photography for #WeddingHourLive

My recovery rate isn’t what it used to be.  It’s taken me the best part of a week to shake off the fug following a frightfully good night at our first ever #WeddingHourLive. 

Peter Boyd Photography for #WeddingHourLive

Lisa of The Wedding Affair and I have been wanting to collaborate for a while – and we wanted to do it in style – so we decided to get together to bring the wedding industry’s Twitter feed to life for a spooky Halloween soiree.  This was an entirely not for profit event, and our way of saying thank you to an industry that is so supportive of our businesses.  Plus, being in the events game, we like to show off what we can do! 

And what a night it was

Peter Boyd Photography for #WeddingHourLive

Whenever you throw a party, there’s always that 12 year old girl inside shrieking “Oh my god!  Will anyone come?!  Does anyone like me?!  Will there be enough cake?!  Will people dress up?!”. The party bags were packed, but we needed a crowd. 

We weren’t disappointed!

They came.  They costumed (beyond all expectation).  They cocktailed.  They casino’ed.  And they teared up the dance floor. 

Peter Boyd Photography for #WeddingHourLive

We really do love you all.  A huge thank you for your amazing support and making this event so much fun.  Thanks-not-so-much for the week long hangover. 

Peter Boyd Photography for #WeddingHourLive

If you follow this blog on Facebook and Twitter (ahem!) then you’ll have already seen some candid and photo booth shots from the night (thank you Peter and Susie at Booth Revolution), but here’s a first look at what went down from behind our roving photographers’ lenses.  There’s more to come… no one’s safe (!)… but here are a few of our favourites so far!

Ribbons & Lace: Augusta Jones For A Real Wedding At Nostell Priory – Laura & Phil

July 3rd, 2013 | Julia Braime

.

Peter Boyd Photography at Nostell Priory

.

.

Hey, hey… it’s halfway to the weekend!  Is anyone saying I do this week?  I’d love to hear all about your big day.  I’ll be playing bridesmaid for my friends Charlotte and Matt this Saturday, and it’ll be lovely to take off my professional wedding blogger hat and just get stuck into the festivities.  People always ask if my job in the industry now spoils celebrations for me (the thinking being that I’ll have seen it all), and the answer is certainly not!  I adore a good wedding.  Each is different, each is beautiful.  It’s the individuals and their friends and family who make a wedding day special, alongside all those carefully chosen little details and personal touches. 

.

This afternoon we join Laura and Phil for their gorgeous celebration at one of my favourite West Yorkshire venues (and one that I have the privilege of working with twice a year at our Brides Up North Luxury Wedding Exhibitions), Nostell Priory.  With images by Brides Up North Featured Supplier Peter Boyd Photography

Laura says: We got engaged in June 2011.  We were on holiday in Frigiliana in Spain. Phil had booked a gorgeous private villa and he proposed on the balcony on the first evening

.

.

Peter Boyd Photography at Nostell Priory

.

We were married on 27th April 2013 at the beautiful Nostell Priory in Wakefield.  We looked at a number of hotels and although the reception rooms were lovely, we were underwhelmed with the ceremony rooms, and that is the most important part of the day after all! The Top Hall at Nostell definitely had the wow factor and we loved the exclusivity of the venue.

.

We chose a colour scheme of aubergine and ivory, with lots of lace and ribbon and flowers. 

.

.

Our florist was Flowers by Camilla Jane, and they arrangements were perfect.  The bridal bouquet was a hand tied arrangement with a cottage garden feel with dusky pink roses, ivy, carnations, peonies and gypsophila.

.

.

.

.

I wore a beautiful Augusta Jones gown from Brides of York of French ivory lace over silk with a lace bolero.

I added a tulle two tiered veil embellished with crystals and a headdress by Halo & Co.

.

My bridal shoes were from Rachel Simpson Shoes and are highly recommend – not only beautiful but comfortable all day!

.

.

My bridesmaid wore a floor length empire line gown in chiffon from JJ’s House in grape purple and we also had a flower girl who looked very cute in a Monsoon ivory and chiffon and lace dress.

To add a personal touch I hand knitted hearts for name places and made toys for the kids.  I also made all the stationery and table plans which were a match to our invitations.

Our cake was made by Heather Fawcett, a family friend.  We had a fruit cake for the top two tiers, decorated with handmade purple roses. We also had a selection of vanilla cupcakes with vanilla frosting and chocolate brownie cupcakes with white chocolate frosting. Very yummy!

We had the Blues Armada, a live jazz and swing band for the evening reception and they were fantastic and really made our day.  Luke Cannon the lead vocalist for the Blues Armada also supplied the music for the wedding breakfast, playing piano accompanied by a saxophonist.

For the wedding night we stayed at Oulton Hall in Leeds, very luxurious and the staff were very friendly and helpful.  We stayed an extra night at Oulton Hall before heading off to a cottage in Pickering for a mini-moon. We are in the process of booking a holiday to China in June which will be our ‘proper’ honeymoon.

.

.

Peter Boyd Photography at Nostell Priory

.

.

Phil is still whinging about missing out on the canapés so his top tip for other Brides Up North is to make sure you sample all your food!  Everything goes by so quickly I would say make sure you spend a few minutes with your groom just taking everything in. It’s such an amazing experience being surrounded by everyone who loves you and watching them have a great time.

.

Congratulations Laura & Phil!

If you are a regular reader, you’ll know that just last week we hosted our biggest Yorkshire bridal event to date at the National Railway Museum in York – with almost 1,000 visitors!  You can read my excitable recap from the morning after the event by clicking here

.

Whilst I was busy organising things behind the scenes and chatting to all you fabulous brides front of house, my friend and Featured Supplier Pete of Peter Boyd Photography was styling up something special with Becky of The Little Bridal Company (another very fabulous Brides Up North sponsor).  With some help from fellow exhibitors Love Bouquets and The Yorkshire Heritage Bus Company – here are the beautiful results, which should give a sense of just how stunning this venue really is!

.

And just how lovely are these frocks by The Little Bridal Company?!  Brides and bridesmaids, form an orderly queue…

.

Enjoy, and we hope to see you there next time!
