I am as my Dad does not want to give one although I'm not sure if mine will be okay. I'll post it and you can read through what I have, although I daresay it will get ammended at some point.
Those of you who know me quite well probably aren't surprised that I wanted to say a few words today. Those of you who know me very well will be surprised if it is only a few!
Thank you all for coming. It's a great feeling to look around this room and see our family and friends hopefully enjoying themselves together.
Of course, there are some faces missing from this celebration. I'd like to make a toast to the people we know and love who for whatever reasons are unable to be with us today. Ladies and Gentlemen, would you please stand and raise your glasses to 'Absent Friends and Loved Ones'.
Now I don't mean to bore you with repetition, but I would like to say a few personal thank you's to some very important people who have contributed enormously to our day:-
Starting with the unsung heroine of this wedding, my sister Jane, who has put up with my endless talk on just about anything and everything connected to the wedding. Thank you for listening when what you really wanted to do was slap me. I am grateful for your love and support, especially during the walk home from the hen night!
I would also like to thank Rob, the best man, for making sure that Tim turned up today, on time, properly dressed and at the right church. You have carried out your duties with expertise and without you Tim might have put the ring on the wrong finger and found himself married to the vicar.
I would like to thank Tim's parents, Anne especially, for the kindness that they have shown me from the first day I met them and for welcoming me in to their family as they have done.
I'd also like to thank my parents for everything they have done for me, and today I feel I have partly repaid them by bringing them a new son who will without a doubt be far less troublesome than I have been.
A special big thank you to Christopher Adam and Molly, today would not have been the same without you.
To the rest of you who have helped and assisted to make this day as special as it has been a big heart felt thank you goes to each and every one of you.
Finally I have to say thank you to my new husband, not only is he a fantastic father to our daughter Evie he is also my best friend. I love you and hope that every day will be as happy as today - just not as expensive!
You'll be pleased to know that's all, thank you for being such wonderful guests and here's to love, laughter and being happy.
