Anna Maynard



“Anna made our wedding day so special and the process so easy. Anna created the
most memorable song which ended up being our ‘walking down the aisle’ song – and
was so sentimental to my husband and I. I cannot thank Anna enough for her
beautiful music which brought such joy to the chapel and such a special mood to our
ceremony.” – Tom and Aline

“Anna wrote a beautiful song for Rex which she sang at the celebration of life service
we held for him after his death. It was such a special and moving tribute, and
beautifully encapsulated different parts of his life. It’s lovely to listen to now, more
than a year after his passing.” – John and Rosalie
