good afternoon to everyone,for the people that dont know me, my names andy leigh the best man, and for those of you that do know me, this speach will not be as mental as you are all presuming. honest?
firstly i would like everyone to rasie there glasses to the beautiful bride, you will all agree she looks stunning today, and a absolute saint for not doing a runner. i would like to also thank alan and helen, for rasing elenor up to be the great friend i know today.
secondly i would to thank the bridesmaid beks, who looks equally as stunning, and for supporting ele all the way to being here today
moving on it’s great to see that everyone is enjoying the wedding today, but I have to say that being best man you get to see behind the scenes, and let me tell you it isn’t pretty. last night there were tears, hissy fits, chucking lipstick and mascara all over the place, luckily, I’ve heard that ele was better behaved than the pughie.
Quite clearly, no expense has been spared in creating this wonderful occasion for us all to enjoy. And by the way, please don't worry if you have heard any unusual noises during the speeches….. it's only pughies wallet groaning in agony, we all know how tight he is, it must have been hard for him to part with all this money.
Looking around this packed room, it's surprising just how far some people are prepared to travel for a free lunch. It's a good job Pughie didn’t choose the menu, otherwise you would have been very disappointed to have come all this way for cheese sandwiches washed down with ALDI lager.
now the rest speach is going to be quite short because of my throat ...... if i go on for too long eles threatend to cut it.
well where do i start, pughie was born on 29 december 1988 . Now I don't know whether this is a coincidence or not, but 2 weeks after he was born Family Planning was made available free on the NHS!!
Looking at him now you may not believe this, but hayd was not a pretty baby... In fact, he was the only baby in north wales to have shutters on his pram!
You know, Sue didn't actually get morning sickness until AFTER he was born!
Hayd was also a slow starter. At Playschool pughie was different from all the other 5 year olds... He was 11!
Friends used to ask Sue and wayne what they thought pughie would be when he left school. The usual reply was “Oh, about 35 "!
when pughie did finally leave school, he did so to pursue a career in his life long hobbie and passion rugby, an moved to coleg sir gar. and prospered from there, although i was very proud for him an made up, it also upset me, who was i going to pull with now he was gone, who would i bleach my hair with? where would we have partys at now he was leaving 12 park ave? low an behold though me an rach kept the last point going for some while after he left.
now like i said i was upset when he left, but also i can tell you it was the best decision he ever made, because if he didnt he wouldnt have met elenor getting that after hours sports massage, an we wouldnt be here today, now i want to take a minute to thank ele for bringing the best out of pughie, he has always been an amazing person and a great friend to me, but i wasnt until he met you that he chasnged into the best person he possibly could be, so ele for that i thank you, also i would like to thank you both for creating two beautiful children in lili and george, who are an absolute credit to you both, and are lucky to have two incredible people as parents. but i will say this, if you need a hand on making a third, you know where i am ( wink at ele)
