Robert Cope MSc BSc(Hons) BA – the founder of Bespoke Speech – started his writing career as a copyeditor and copywriter for a leading London digital media agency and is also published widely in theatre. Robert has put together a small but highly competent team of professional speechwriters to form Bespoke Speech. Robert devoted his career to researching the ancient art of speech writing, from Aristotle’s ‘Golden Triangle of Speech Writing‘ to modern day political speeches and of course traditional after-dinner and wedding speeches.
After many years of intense research in modern communication theory, mastering in the arts of persuasion, argument and presentation, audience focus or the ‘audience-led approach‘ using techniques such as ‘pacing‘ and ‘leading‘, Robert has uncovered why many of today’s so-called speechwriters fail. Failure often comes from the lack of audience-focus, which is the reason behind all the wedding and political speech disasters we see today. A successful speech is one where the speaker and the audience is aligned, and that is where Bespoke Speech comes in. We’ll do a much better professional job, than attempting it yourself, or even an attempt by one of the average so-called speechwriters you find hawking their trade online. If you want a great speech, then you’ve come to the best team around.

How long does it take?
Ideally, you would contact us with at least two weeks before the deadline. This way we can get back to you several times to refine the speech further.
However, if you have a particularly tight deadline, do let us know and a typical wedding speech can be completed within 72 hours after receiving your completed questionnaire. You’ll still get a good speech if you’re on a tight deadline, but purchasing your speech earlier helps us to refine the speech even more.
Can I make changes to the speech if needed?
Yes. You can request an unlimited amount of changes to your speech. We will amend your speech until you are fully satisfied with it.
How does the wedding speech process work?
We will speak on the phone and discuss a few details about your wedding e.g. the date, your fiance, your family. Following which, we will send you an email with a questionnaire to complete so that we can have a greater understanding of you, your family background and what you would like to say in your speech.
Can you write speeches for the Bride, Best Man and Parents?
Yes, we can write speeches for the Master of Ceremonies (MC), best men, grooms, brides, maid of honour, mother and father of the bride. In fact, anyone who would like to deliver a wedding speech. Please visit our Shop page for a full list of speeches we can write for you. SHOP
I have already written my speech, but it needs editing. Can you do this for me?
Absolutely. Another pair of eyes is always useful and if you want to add some humour, a quote or two or other finishing touches – we can also do that for you!
I am happy with my speech, but am nervous about standing up in front of everyone. Have you got any advice?
You are not alone! It is daunting for most people to stand up in public and speak to an audience. However, the Bespoke Speech team is here to help you overcome your nerves with some useful advice for all our clients.
