At long last, a book about writing wedding speeches that are bang up to date – not still based on the traditional roles from the last century or two, although there’s plenty of advice on how to do those well if they’re your choice.
Added to that, though, are speech ideas for all the women in your family and circle of close friends … your children, both adult and younger … and of course, partners, friends and families of same-sex marriage partners.
Interestingly enough, currently there are no other books on Amazon or elsewhere that I can find, and I have been researching… that cover such a wide spread of wedding speech makers in as many social circumstances as I have included.
Although this is an eBook it’s not a short one. In all it runs to more than 90 single-spaced A4 pages, nearly 25,000 words which is just over half the length of an average business or self-help paperback book.
In fact I had to restrain myself with this book as there was so much more I could have shared … maybe in the next edition which I will produce and publish as a full-length book if you folks decide you’d like that!
About the Author
Canadian born Suzan St Maur (a.k.a. “Suze”) was transported to the UK when a child and despite resultant cultural challenges managed to leave British secondary school with three decent “A” levels and no talent for anything other than writing, so her career options were fairly clear cut.
After serving a full journalism apprenticeship on a provincial newspaper, she attended and graduated from the then-famous Watford Art School advertising writing course and worked in London ad agencies as a copywriter for a few years, before deciding she was far too bolshie to be an employee and so became a freelancer.
While comfortably paying her mortgage and bills her work took off into the areas of business theatre and corporate video, in which disciplines she became the Grandma Moses of corporate script and speechwriting for many years.
Suze also developed useful skills as a conference and video producer, largely in emergencies caused by the actual practitioners’ bunking off through illness, drunkenness, excessive use of recreational substances, etc. It’s amazing how fast you can learn to do a job if the person who should be doing it is in la-la-land …
