Wedding Speech Delivered by the Groom

Well , what can I say, Thankyou for those kind words Alan
and I hope $20 was enough.

I recently read somewhere that a survey had been conducted
of things that people fear most, and top of the list above things like
spiders and heights, was the fear of standing up and making a speech in public.
I'm no different, suffice to say that this isn't the first time today I've
risen from a warm seat with a piece of paper in my hand.

MANY PEOPLE

Many people thought this day would never come. That I'd be
standing here making the speech of a Newly Married man, myself included.
Many people have also told me how lucky I am to be

TRADITION

Tradition dictates that I now tell you an amusing story or two about Jo,
unfortunately she dictates that I do no such thing. But I will say, that we've been living together now for nearly 3 years, and in that time I've learned a very valuable lesson:

Whenever you're Wrong - Admit It!!
Whenever you're Right - Keep Quiet!!

That's probably good advice for most men actually!!!

THANK YOU'S

There are a few thankyous I'd like to make tonight.

I'd like to start by thanking everyone that's helped make
this day the
success I'm sure you'll all agree it has been.

Thank Daph

I'd like to say a special thankyou though to Jo's mum Daphne
and her husband Stan for their generosity in...
