We often play outside and are more than happy to do so, weather permitting of course. We are unable to sit in full sun on hot days due to our instruments, but are happy to sit in shaded spots of gardens, for example under some trees. It is not uncommon for our couples to put up a small gazebo to ensure we can play outside if there isn't any shade at all at their venue. We are unable to play outside if there is rain, strong wind or during cold weather.
Travelling between venues is not a problem at all, and we often play for a church ceremony and then go on to a reception venue with our couples. Any travelling would be done within the total time period that you book us for. So there isn't any disruption to the music at your event, we do ask that you take this into consideration when deciding on the duration of your booking.
We just knew we had to book them...
"As soon as we heard Scintillo playing at a wedding we went to, we just knew we had to book them. On the day, they set a beautiful atmosphere and also had quite a calming effect (especially for the bridal party). So many of our guests commented on how AMAZING they sounded...in fact one of our guests didn't move from his seat until Scintillo had finished playing...he was enjoying listening to them so much! Thank you all."

"Thank you for your wonderful performance on our wedding day - having your quartet there really did add to a very special day for us and we so many comments from our guests complimenting you all."

Perfect sprinkling of class and elegance...
"The Scintillo String Quartet were an exquisite addition to our annual Summer Drinks Soiree, elevating the event from a perfectly enjoyable and civilised drinks party, to a quintessentially sublime garden party fit for a queen. Performing a perfectly pitched repartee throughout the evening, charming all with their finesse, they were quite simply stunning and added the perfect sprinkling of class & elegance - simply scintillating!"
Val Remington Hobbs - Private Garden Party, Suffolk
Wonderful sense of style...
"This is to record a HUGE thank you to the whole quartet for a wonderful, magical evening of music-making at Sibton on Saturday. You make music together as it should be made: with passion, elegance, a wonderful sense of style and evident enjoyment. We cannot thank you enough. Bravo to all of you - we shall now have to think of when we can entice you somewhere next! But for the moment, it's the warm afterglow."
