Humorous Wedding Speech Delivered at a Golf Club

Firstly, I would like to thank Nick for his kind words on behalf of the bridesmaids and anyone else he mentioned. While I’m on the subject of gratitude, thanks also to Elite Golf Club and all the workers for a wonderful spread. Any chance of a golf membership?

Before getting into things, I must say what a truly wonderful wedding it's been so far. Pretty church, glamorous cars, glorious flowers, magnificent food, a beautiful bride and an average groom. Naturally, Nick didn’t want any of this expense though. Being an accountant, his original idea for the dinner today was to pick up several family buckets from Kentucky Fried Chicken. He also suggested to Shimona that they have the ceremony at the PB garage to save on a camera man.

But Nick's really quite well off you know, but this is the closest you’ll get to him boasting about it. In fact, you could spend the whole night in the pub with him and not realize he has a penny to his name. I don't know if you have noticed, but Nick has had actually had his suit specially designed for today, featuring shortened arms and extra-deep pockets.

That’s the last of the accountant jokes … I think the facts speak for themselves. In any case, I don’t think it’s valid to bunch all accountants into stereotypes … Nick, for example, is a monotype!

And I first met him at a party one New Years Eve, where a game was organized that required us to pair up and get into teams. Wanting to win the prize of four cans of lager - quite a trophy when you were sixteen - I approached the most athletic and intelligent guy there. But Keith Fletcher was already paired up, so I had to settle for Nick. And no, we didn't win the lager, but it didn't stop us from being pals ever since.

He’ll be the first to admit that he’s never been the sportiest of blokes as doing any form of exercise seems to bring on a headache. But he does enjoy the odd game of badminton and is very keen on football, rather than play though, he prefers to stay in and watch games on the telly (TV). He loves watching the soap operas as well. In fact, if it wasn't for Emmerdale he’d hardly get any fresh air at all.
