"Steve's guide is a must-read for any groom. As a wedding photographer I have attended in excess of 200 ceremonies and have witnessed many a flustered groom in a state of panic during their speech, primarily attributed to poor preparation. Steve's step-by-step approach will ensure all your foundations are in place to deliver an engaging, heartfelt and humorous speech... just like Steve's was!" - Rob Tarren, professional wedding photographer.
"Steve's speech was fabulous. It was thoughtfully planned and brilliantly delivered. He made everyone feel very special- a great format for other grooms to adapt."
- Pav Saunders, educational consultant.
"I loved the structure and style of Steve's speech so much I used it myself at my wedding. A superb template!" - Jason Kane, groom.
"After using Steve's groom's speech as a template, I found writing my own much easier than it would have been. My guests loved it." - Daniel Toth, groom.
