97% of wedding speakers copy the same dull, generic speeches and phony lines off Google.

But you can be original and epic.






I focus your years of memories… write your killer original speech… and show you how to nail it without stress


Hi… I’m Wedding Speechwriter & Strategist Den Pope.

Brides, grooms and audiences are tired of do-it-yourself wedding speeches pieced together with dull, rambling stories and canned, one-size-fits-all lines and other silliness pulled off Google they’ve all heard before. Snore.

I’ll help you shock, surprise and thrill the bride, groom and everyone with a killer original speech that is funny, warm and unforgettable.

A great wedding speech is an event game changer. Be the one speaker who finally cared enough to give their best in an original speech.

And enjoy the thanks and compliments from everyone.

Steve, Illinois

I had well over 50% of the people attending the wedding compliment me on my speech. What a great feeling! My daughter and new son-in-law loved it as well. When I first decided to hire you, I thought you were a little pricey, but after going through the full DEN experience, I can honestly say the fee you charge is a real value.” (continue)



Jim, New York

At least 20 people told me it was the best wedding speech they've ever heard. Another 100 told me they loved it one way or another. The brilliant part is that Den is actually pulling the speech out of you and organizing your thoughts - the memories, tone and jokes are all yours.” (continue)

Give the Best Wedding Speech They’ve Ever Heard

Your relationship with the bride or groom is like no one else’s.

But it’s difficult to step back from years of thoughts, memories and feelings to make sense of it all.

I get to the heart, soul and humor of your relationship to create a speech only one person in the world can give—you.

Your voice and personality can’t be captured in canned speeches, generic compliments and silly lines pulled off Google.

Audiences want an authentic, inside look at your relationship and will feel bored and manipulated if you try and con them with the same empty platitudes that can be said about every bride and groom anywhere. Zzz…

The best speech is grounded in the fact humans have been hard-wired for story since the Stone Age.

So like a movie, your speech must grab, entertain and surprise the audience in a simple, easy-to-follow narrative structure that is more showing than telling.
