Wedding Readings and Speeches

Wedding Readings and Speeches

Readings are one of the easiest ways to personalise your wedding ceremony and what type you choose will depend on your venue – religious readings and hymns, for example, are not permitted in a civil ceremony location.

Having readings at your ceremony is also a great way of including a special friend or relative in the day, especially if you haven't been able to choose them as a member of the main bridal party.

Any public speaking can be daunting, but this handy section will guide you through and give you top tips on how to deliver a speech or reading to remember.
