Weddings & Civil Partnerships
Live music has become a personal and integral part of weddings, civil partnerships and blessings and with an exceptional standard of playing and a sophisticated performance at every event, the Scintillo String Quartet is the superlative choice to provide the musical soundtrack to your celebrations.
We pride ourselves in working with our couples to provide the perfect atmosphere for any part of their day. The versatility of a string quartet has endless possibilities to accent a particular theme or mood and we can include particular music at key points during the day. Whether it be Classical music for a ceremony, contemporary pop covers for a drinks reception in the grounds of your venue, film and theatre favourites during your wedding breakfast or your special song for a romantic first dance, let us put together the music you envisage.
Bespoke music for weddings is increasingly popular and as creative musicians we offer an arrangement service to ensure we can perform your favourite music if it isn't already part of our extensive repertoire. We welcome your enquiry as we relish the opportunity to work with you to create something memorable for you and your guests.
Corporate Events, Parties & Celebrations
Having played at company launches, formal dinners, anniversaries, birthday celebrations and christenings across Suffolk, Essex, Norfolk and throughout East Anglia, the Scintillo String Quartet is able to provide a professional and unobtrusive musical backdrop for any event.
Key to our success is that we recognise that our clients have individual and specific requirements and we can tailor our music and dress accordingly to suit both formal and informal occasions.
Amongst others, our clients have included Audi UK, The White Company, Pearson Longman, Jimmy's Farm, Ipswich Hospital NHS Trust, Norfolk & Norwich Hospital Trust, Aldeburgh Music, Colchester Castle, ELT Marketing Events, Anglia Ruskin University, The Fitzwilliam Museum, The University of Essex, Crusaid, and Informa UK.
Memorial Services, Celebration of Life & Funerals
Music can be one of the most fitting ways to help reflect and commemorate the life of a loved one and Scintillo have been privileged to provide comforting music, during and after, for many funerals and memorial services.
Choosing music for such life events can be difficult and we empathise with how promptly arrangements often need to be made. Sometimes families request just a solo instrument, such as violin or cello, and we are honoured to provide this as an alternative to, or alongside, our string quartet.
With reverence we are always delighted to perform particular pieces, or in some circumstances put together appropriate music from our repertoire to assist with your planning and to create an atmosphere of cordiality, celebration and reflection.

"I wanted to write and thank you and the other players in the Scintillo Quartet for the wonderful job...you were so positive and prompt with the initial enquiries that you were the one area I didn't have to worry about letting me down. On the night, your choice of music added real atmosphere to the cocktail reception and you all played with such professionalism and style that many people commented on our choice. So - thank you! I will definitely use you again when I recover enough to organise another party in London!"
Bev Acreman - Global Marketing & Customer Services Director Taylor & Francis Journals
"We were so pleased with the wonderful atmosphere you created during our ceremony and 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!"
