The Godfather Speech

"For those of you that don’t know us, I’m David and this is my wife Claudy. And we’re lucky enough to be amongst Jade and Joe's best friends. I’m just going to share a little about how Jade and Joe came into our lives, so please bare with me. I’ll try and keep it short.

We first met Jade about 5 or 6 years ago. We were both working for the same company, when Jade was lucky enough to be given a job there as well, or was it unlucky.

Jade was very different back then, and had a bit of a wild streak. I remember numerous nights out where she would drag us from club to club and absolutely not letting us go home until the early hours.

I think it’s fair to say meeting Joe has had a calming effect on Jade. I say meeting Joe, but in fact they were childhood friends, until Joe's family moved away. But they got back in touch and the rest is history.

I remember the first time we met Joe. We’d all arranged to meet up for a drink in the Goose. When we walked in, Joe was sat there looking like he’d arrived for an interview, he was that nervous. So interview him we did and I’m pleased to say he did quite well, and we decided he’s probably a good egg and soon after they started dating.

Claudy and i have witnessed some of the biggest moments in either of your lives, as you have with ours. Most recently our wedding, in which you both played a big part.

We were with you on that beach when you got engaged and we were amongst the first to hear when you found out you were expecting little Ted.

We are honored that you would choose us to be Teds godparents, and we want you to know that we will do our utmost to support and encourage him as he grows up.

It was the 17th December 2012, when you welcomed Ted into the world and your lives were changed  forever. Ted is only 6 months old but it’s already hard to imagine what life was like before he was here.      

Ted has bags of character, and I think the number of people here just shows what a big part he already plays in all our lives, and how much love and support he will continue to receive.

It’s going to be a pleasure watching him grow up and i’m sure he’ll do you proud. Just remind him who his godparents are when he makes it big in Hollywood!

So if you happen to be holding a drink, i’d like to propose a toast.

Here’s to Jade, Joe and Ted. Welcome to the world buddy!"
