Personalised poems & rhyming speeches by Words of Essence

We specialise in writing bespoke rhyming speeches & personalised poems for all of life’s special occasions including Weddings & Civil Ceremonies, Anniversaries, Birthdays, Retirements, Valentines Day and more. A personalised poem or speech will express what you want to say in a unique and original way. Having a professional writer do this for you ensures that you use the right words with the right sentiment.

 Each speech or poem that we create has a story behind it and is individual to the people or person who make that story. By bringing together anecdotes of shared experiences and specific information we are able to capture the essence of each story, emotions and feelings and turn them into a unique poetic verse or rhyming speech.  We have written plenty of rhyming wedding speeches including Best Man Speech, Groom Speech, Father of the Bride Speech, Bride’s Speech, Maid of Honour Speech, Bridesmaids Speech and more. We have also created many Bespoke Wedding Poems for wedding couples as a unique wedding gift that have been read out as a speech by a close friend or family member and then presented as a beautiful framed gift. We have also penned lots of bespoke poetry for birthday gifts, leaving gifts, wedding anniversaries and so much more.

Whatever you want to say, we can tell your story in a clever rhyme. This is what makes our work unique.

We work closely with our clients to create the perfect tone and sentiment. Whether you want a witty and humorous style, charming and charismatic, purely sentimental or a mixture of all, you set the tone, we write the verse.

Frequently asked questions

Once you have chosen and purchased your package for your personalised poem or rhyming wedding speech, you will then be emailed a questionnaire. The questionnaire will ask for different information depending on whether you have purchased a poem or a speech. For a poem, we will ask you about the recipient(s) such as information about their character, their likes and dislikes, what they particularly love or what annoys them, any funny stories and general information so that we can build up a portrait of the person or people for whom the poem will be written. For a speech we will ask you for information such as who will the speech be written for Are you the bride, groom, best man, father of the bride, mother of the bride or a close member of the family or friend who wishes to make a unique speech of your own.  Depending on the information received we may need to contact you further for an informal chat to discuss the finer detail and to truly understand how you want your speech or poem to be written. Following this, we will set to work and cleverly craft your speech or poem for you. You will then be given the opportunity to comment on a draft and any editing that is required will be undertaken until you are completely happy. Depending on your chosen package, you will then receive your finished product via email or printed, framed and delivered to you via Royal Mail or courier. If you have any queries before placing your order and you would like to discuss our services in more detail then please feel free to contact us.
