Groom's Wedding Speech - Humorous, but Not Offensive

You probably noticed that the roses, which she was giving out at church, were bought on behalf of the British Heart Foundation. This is a charity very close to our hearts - excuse the pun - because my dad had heart surgery sixteen years ago. In fact it was when I was going through my teenager years, although I’m sure that's just coincidence. It is thanks to the work of charities like the B.H.F that my dad is here
