Wedding and Funeral Singing and Covid 19 / Corona Virus
Live singing brings something special to wedding or funeral services,
so I am still singing throughout this covid19 crisis.
I am monitoring the situation closely and following the most recent guidelines.
Please note that your funeral and wedding singer don't count to the overall number of people allowed to attend.
I can sing the Hymns instead of the congregation, at a safe distance. Alternatively Hymns can also be replaced with solos.
For singing by the graveside - I can sing without amplification or bring my portable busker sound system for backing tracks and a mic.

“Marianne Lihannah recently sang at the funeral service for my dear mother.
Not only did I find her to be the consummate professional in finalizing arrangements, she showed compassion throughout
and I felt as if I had known her for years.
Marianne's voice is both soothing and uplifting at the same time.
She sang with passion, emotion and sensitivity. Most importantly of all..... my dear mother would have loved it!”
Gail Meredith Vaynor, South Wales
“A huge thank you Marianne for all you did to organise the singing and music for our wedding,
we are very grateful.
We found you so very helpful in the planning stages and were very appreciative for your dedicated advice,
flexibility and promptness in communication and that you were also able to organise the organist to play.
On the day, we were delighted with your beautiful singing - it was just perfect and we were so glad you could also lead the congregation
in the other songs.
Our guests commented on what a lovely service
it was and your singing was an important part of that.
We would recommend you to anyone without hesitation.
Julie & Phillip Hemmings, Wedding in Chipping Camden
“What a truly amazing voice you have. Singing Ave Maria at my grandads funeral was simply stunning.
It was so moving and brought tears to everyone's eyes.
It made the day so special and we will cherish the memory forever. I can't recommend you highly enough.
Very helpful and organised even with only days to prepare. A true Joy.”
Louise Figgett, Tewkesbury
“Well we are back from our honeymoon and would like to say a huge thank you for singing at our wedding.
Your voice is breathtaking, which made our ceremony so very special.
We found that having you sing enabled us to take those few minutes, when the focus was on you, to savor and truly take in each other and what was happening. Priceless!
Also, your professionalism from our first email right through to our big day was superb, which helped me greatly to organize it all from abroad. In particular, your ability and willingness to transpose the music we wanted and work with our harpist to enable her to accompany you was amazing.
Thank you so much Marianne!
Please feel free to give out my name and email as a reference.
There is a small token of our gratitude in the post to you - your singing will be treasured by us both in our memories forever.”
Rachel and Mark Harris, Wedding in Hampton Court Castle
