We were so pleased with the wonderful atmosphere you created during our drinks reception with your incredibly varied repertoire...it really added to the magic of the day for us. You were also my favourite supplier to deal with; so quick to reply to emails, really helpful with suggestions and stress free, which is crucial during wedding planning!

Four bows in talented hands; caressing sixteen strings with mesmeric enthusiasm; coupled with an audience pleasing repertoire of Classics, contemporary, jazz, show-time, pop and humour that can be tailored to suit any event. It's been a huge pleasure working with you all...I would recommend anyone to book you.

Forgive the lateness of this letter to thank the Scintillo String Quartet so much for playing at Oliver and Laura's wedding. It was really lovely and you set just the right tone with your skilful playing and your variety for the drinks reception. It was really great to have you all and you are so professional, talented and helpful. In all our communications in planning your part, Chris, you were extremely helpful and accommodating. So thank you again, I would certainly recommend you and maybe we can use you again in the future.
