What was Tom Fletcher’s wedding speech and how do I watch it?
Tom Fletcher is one of the brave celebrities who hope to impress the judges of Strictly Come Dancing 2021 this year.
But remember 2012, and the McFly star set the bar high for newlyweds around the world when he gave an adorable wedding speech for his wife Giovanna.
If you haven’t watched it yet, it might be worth grabbing some tissues as things are about to get very emotional.
What is Tom Fletcher’s wedding speech?
Tom had previously shared his wedding speech on YouTube, along with the caption: “Here is my speech from our wedding on 12/5/12.
“He might be the most nervous I’ve ever been in my life (about the speech, not the wedding!).”
The video begins with Tom standing at the top table, explaining that he hates public speaking, so he was working on a song to sing for his big day.
“Giovanna can tell you that the only nerves and anxieties I had about this marriage were to give this speech,” he said.
“I absolutely hate public speaking. Me and public speaking, we just don’t get along at all. Mainly because I have no idea how to write a good speech …
“But I know how to write a song. So I hope I’m not too wrong. “
Using some of McFly’s greatest hits, Tom then thanks his special wedding guests by changing the song lyrics.
If that wasn’t emotional enough, he also uses a slideshow to share lyrics and old photos of his family and friends.
The most moving moment of the clip comes when he dedicates the track “It’s All About You” to his new wife.
A choir from the Sylvia Young Drama School – where the couple first met – then appear and there isn’t a dry eye in the room.
And even eight years later, fans still adore Tom’s wedding speech, with just one writing: “I watched this when it was uploaded in 2013 and it’s in 2019 and I’m still here.”
Another wrote: “It literally makes me cry for joy because now they have three beautiful boys and it puts me in my feelings.”
While a third added: “Gi you lucky! I’m sobbing and laughing at the same time!
Since their marriage, Giovanna and Tom are now parents of three, Buzz, seven, Buddy, five, and Max, three.
