Amazing wedding and amazing band
I had heard Anna before and was blown away by her talent so as soon as we started planning wedding details she was the only singer we wanted along with the band so did an individual part. She sang me down the aisle in Italian and made it so special. Everyone commented on how great the entertainment was and I wouldn’t have had anyone else. Helped make our special day amazing.

My wedding
Anna sang fields of gold at my wedding ceremony... it was so beautiful and made everyone cry. The day wouldn’t have been the same without Anna there. She’s extremely talented and I would recommend the Anna Reay band for any event - weddings, balls & birthdays! She’ll make any occasion a special one to remember.

FAQ
(4)

What is your most memorable wedding?

Jackson 5 - Or could have been in a romantic duo with Michael Bublè - Could call us Dublè !

Describe your style in 5 adjectives.

This is a tough one. It depends on the audience but I would say 'Don't Stop Me NOw' - Queen, 'Uptown Funk' - Bruno Mars or 'I wanna Dance With Somebody' Whitnet Houston

What about your business are you most proud of?

As well as weddings and corporate events we have two theatre shows, 'Great Laides of Song' & 'One Enchanted Evening'. Seeling out the Sage in Gateshead, the Whitley Bay Playhouse and the Gala Theatre in Durham we're looking forward to our next one in 2018. We have also just released a charity single 'Sunset on the Tyne' proceeds to Prostate Cancer UK.

What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?

I think a romantic first dance is a one which means something to the couple. I've had a few people asking for suggestions as 'their song' wasn't appropriate. However, even if the lyrics say something else. If its 'your song' its 'your song'! We can also amend the lyrics slightly if needs be. Or of you haven't got a first dance pick something romantic but with a good beat so if you don't want to be up their just the two of you it will be a good enough song to get others to join in.
