The speeches started after dessert with my dad going first. Fortunately he didn't say anything too embarrassing about me and was actually rather sweet. I think my mum was a bit surprised by how sentimental he was!
My new husband's speech was quite emotional, he broke down when he started talking about his dad but his friends gave him a cheer of encouragement and he was able to get through it. I knew he was really nervous about his speech so I was really proud of him.
Afterwards it was the best man who had, apparently, read through his speech 3 times and had memorised it so he didn't need any pieces of paper! We were all so impressed haha. Here are a few pics:
Oh your venue looks absolutely gorgeous, what a lovely room!
