A joy to deal with...
"Scintillo really were the cherry on top of an incredible wedding day at Bateman's Barn in Suffolk - they're extremely accomplished musicians, but also lovely people who were a joy to deal with. So accommodating and helpful, they went the extra mile to make our choices of ceremony music work beautifully. All in all a wonderful part of our day and we'll be forever grateful."

Nothing was too much to ask on the day and they made our wedding so special...communication from Chris before the wedding put our minds completely at ease...we will be sure to recommend Scintillo to everyone we know."
