Wedding reception ideas? ‘The Bard’

A bespoke text, usually written in a newly married couple’s honour with either their words or those of loved ones, performed by a family member or friend. The most impressive and entertaining of wedding reception ideas, it takes its name from the lead role often assumed by whoever performs it, usually kicking off your festivities.

Depending on whose idea it’s been, together we’d develop an outline for the writing, agreeing in general terms its overall style, subject matter and range.

I’d then work directly with our nominated contributors, asking them to answer particular questions that will help me create our text within my agreed remit.

350+ testimonials will give a sense of all that’s possible with bespoke wedding reception ideas when you strike the right balance between sincerity, gravitas and wit.

‘Just read it! Now crying with the boiler repair man wondering what on earth is wrong with me. It’s beautiful. I don’t want to change anything. Those words beat everything – the best bit of the wedding by a mile.’ CJ

My clients and contributors may be one and the same – the happy couple – wanting the story of their relationship told, entertaining their guests.

Or I might gather memories from a group of friends, kept as a surprise until the day (as long as a nominated editor signs off).

For wedding reception ideas involving a group, you could have more than one speaker – the perfect way to involve guests with a talent for public speaking.

My fee reflects the number of contributors and our text’s length e.g. shorter with less ~£270; longer with more ~£360 (flexible payment possible).
