Wow and more wows!
Anna recently played at our wedding Wanaka for a few hours during our very cosy reception. We had a small intimate wedding with just 2 family members as our guests, Anna was perfect for our special day, we gave flexibility with what Anna played and fully trusted her to play to the mood of the afternoon… we certainly were not disappointed… she was spot on. From the word go upon contacting Anna via email, she was responsive and enthusiastic in every way. I commissioned Anna to write a song for us as a couple and what a beautiful song she produced called “Peter Pan”. So fitting for us both and with such a stunning voice, she took our breath away when she performed it for us at our venue. Anna is a wonderful singer with an amazing voice and a friendly persona to match! She brought such a warmth to the occasion and I would highly recommend Anna for any occasion…without ANY hesitation at all. Thank you for adding some extra sparkle to our special day as the person you are and with your incredible singing.
