“Dear Denise, With my daughter’s wedding due at the end of March I decided that I would probably benefit from your services to help with my Father of the Bride speech. When I visited you a couple of weeks ago my first read through of my prepared speech was pretty awful! You made me feel very relaxed and gave me lots of useful tips and guidance on both the content and the delivery. By the time I left I was more confident and had lots of ideas on how to give my speech. By the time the big day arrived on Saturday, despite some trepidation, the help I received from you meant that I knew I could give it my best shot. During my speech, my daughter was dabbing tears from her eyes and afterwards quite a few of the guests came over and complimented me on the speech. I would like to thank you so much for helping to make my daughter’s wedding day a happy one and for giving me the confidence and techniques I needed to give a successful Father of the Bride speech. I would not hesitate in recommending you to my friends in the future.”
