Lighthearted Wedding Readings

Are you looking for lighthearted wedding readings? Then you can look no further. Lighthearted wedding readings are my speciality.

I write custom poems for weddings of all types and I would love to help you with a personal poem for your special day. Or perhaps you are a family member, or bridesmaid who has been tasked to find the perfect wedding reading.

Whoever you are, whoever it is for, I will happily write for you.

lighthearted wedding readings, poems and speeches written for you by Amy @iwantapoem

I have been creating completely custom wedding poems for almost 10 years and have been lucky enough to write lighthearted wedding readings for couples all around the globe; from Australia to Dubai, from London to New York and everywhere in between.

The way my service works is that you send over the key points that you would like to see included in your poem and then leave the rest to me. Within just a couple of days, you can expect your poem to be with you in your inbox.

It’s that easy. Takes all the stress out of the process for you and gives the couple the gift of an entirely unique personal poem that will set their wedding apart from the rest!

If you are interested in having a unique and lighthearted wedding reading written for you, place your order for your custom poem here or on

I look forward to writing for you.

My Brother’s Wedding

I was honoured this last weekend to not only attend my brother’s wedding, but to also write two custom poems to be performed during the wedding ceremony. One of these was read by my youngest daughter, and the other was read by my brand new sister-in-law’s neice.

I have to say, it was a real privilege to be able to hear them being read aloud at such a personal event.

My sister-in-law’s neice sobbed her way through her personalised poem which opened the whole ceremony. It was received with many ‘awwws’ and set quite a few of us off crying and there wasn’t a tissue to be had for our made-up faces. Yikes!

The poem I had written for my daughter was read just before the happy couple exchanged their rings.  It was a very proud mum moment to see my little girl get up and confidently recite her personalised poem that she had learned off by heart. We had spent a couple of hours practicing before the big day. As the youngest reader, she got laughs in all the right places and a big aww and round of applause at the end.

It was so lovely to be asked to write for my brother’s wedding, but to see the reactions of the wedding guests was the icing on the cake! I’ve been writing custom wedding poems for almost 10 years now and don’t often get to see the end result of my services, so this weekend, I made a memory that will certainly make me and the bride & groom smile for many years to come.

If you would like to have a custom poem written for the wedding of a family member, or for your speech as a groom, father of the bride or best man, please do get in touch and place your order either on this webpage or via

The Days You Remember

What are the days you remember most? Not those that are identical, differentiated only by date. But the days that are different. They are the ones that stand out.

And with that, come the memories. Those are the blocks of happiness that we carry with us, to be fondly looked back on with smiles on our cheeks and feelings of warmth in our chests.

The custom poems I write are built upon those memory blocks. Simply send me the details that you would like to see included in your poem, and then sit back and let me do the rest for you.

Whatever your reason for buying a custom poem, get in touch and place your order today!

Mother’s Day Gifts | Custom Poems

Thoughtful Mother’s Day gifts for your favourite Mum!

Mother’s Day gifts are your chance to do something thoughtful and memorable for that special lady in your life. But just how do you thank who is literally the reason for your existence; the one who gave you life?

I write custom Mother’s Day poems every year for lovely people who want to spoil their fabulous mothers! And this year is no exception.

I can help you convey your cherished memories and beautiful words of thanks, all put together sweetly in a poem that has the potential to make your Mum get all the feels! Maybe she’ll grin, maybe she’ll laugh, maybe she’ll be moved to tears.

Either way, by commissioning a custom poem you are guaranteed this is one Mother’s Day gift that will actually mean something to her.

No need for supermarket flowers, or boxes of chocolate.

I have written poems of all types, from the funny to the devilish, sentimental to soul-bearing but always deeply personal. Whatever you want your poem to say, together we will find the perfect way to say I love you to your brilliant Mum.

Perhaps you intend to visit your Mum on Mothering Sunday, or maybe you’ll get to take her out for a cream tea or a swanky evening meal. Consider having a custom poem you can stand up and read out loud to her at the beginning or end of your meal.

Or perhaps you’d prefer a short poem to pop inside a card. Something that tells her that she is your very best friend!

I can help you with any sort of poem you would like. My poems usually rhyme, but if you want something different, I am happy to go with another style for you.

However, if you’ve already planned your Mother’s Day gift for this year, then get this date popped in your diaries ready for next year: Sunday 11th March 2018.

However you celebrate Mothering Sunday, enjoy giving your poems, cards and gifts to your beautiful Mum. I have been without mine for almost six years now and oh how I wish I could simply see her.

Custom poems make the most unique gifts for Mum.

You gave me roots
You made me strong.
You gave me a home
Somewhere to belong.
You gave me wings,
Encouraged me to try
Then you gave me freedon
And watched me fly!

Custom poems aren’t exclusively for your birth mum though – perhaps you have a special relationship with your mother in law, step-mum or your grandma, or an aunt, or you might have a friend or sister who parents solo.

Touch their hearts and make this year the year you give the most thoughtful Mother’s Day gifts!

Unique. Thoughtful. Personal. Gifts For Mother’s Day

Are you looking for a Mother’s Day gift that is unique, thoughtful and personal?

Then look  no further; you are exactly where you need to be.

I write custom poems for all kinds of situations, and when better to give your mum a poem, than Mother’s day. It is the perfect occasion to express your heartfelt thanks in a really thoughtful and personal way.

Why not take a trip down memory lane and remind your mum of some of the highlights of the time you have shared with one another. Cast your mind back to your childhood, and tell her something that you remember that really triggers her nostalgia bone! Or take it as a chance to say all those things that somehow we never seem to find the time to.

Mums are a special breed, and every one is as unique as we all are.

If you would like to spoil your mother with a special poem for Mother’s day, I would be more than happy to help you create a gift that she will never forget!

To purchase your unique and thoughtful, personal poem, submit your details via the order form and your poem will be with you in just a couple of days.

I look forward hearing your story.
