QHotels launches the UK’s first Wedding Speech Awards

The first-ever search for the UK's best wedding speeches has been launched this month by one of the country's leading hotel chains.

The QHotels Wedding Speech Awards will recognise top wedding speeches by the best man, groom, father of the bride and the bride, amongst others.

Over the next three months, QHotels, the AA Hotel Group of the Year, is calling for speeches to be entered into the awards via the hotel group's Twitter and Facebook page using #Weddingspeech. 

Any speech given at a wedding reception can be submitted, provided the speech is on a video that has been uploaded to the internet and is publicly available. Nominations can come from the speech-givers themselves or another wedding guest.

Prizes - including an overnight stay, a golf lesson, spa day, afternoon tea and vouchers for QHotels - will be awarded to the winning speech-giver and nominator of each category.

QHotels operates  four and five-star hotels across theUKand hosts hundreds of weddings every year. The group's Marketing Director, Claire Rowland, said: "Speeches are one of the things that help to make a wedding memorable, not just for the couple, but for every guest.

"Whether funny or poignant, sardonic or sentimental, a lot of preparation, effort and nerves go into every wedding speech and these days, it's not just the father of the bride, the groom and the best man who make speeches. We've had lots of weddings at our hotels where the mother of the bride, the chief bridesmaid, or the bride herself, say a few words.

"It's common for wedding speeches, like Tom Fletcher's, to be filmed and shared on social media, giving us the perfect opportunity to celebrate more of the nation's top speeches and help inspire others writing a speech of their own."

People can enter a speech into the awards by sending a link to the wedding speech video with #Weddingspeech, stating the category they are entering, to @QHotels on Twitter or post onto QHotels' Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/QHotels.
