“The Scintillo String Quartet was absolutely fantastic - I wonder if you could pass my grateful thanks and warmest regards. Their playing throughout the ceremony was very special and it was just lovely later on having their music float out over the lawns at Downing. Having live music really makes a difference in these situations and makes it all the more vivid in my memory”
“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”
Jane Green - Mother of the Bride
“Just a quick note to say thank you – Rob says it was one of my best decisions to book you. All of our guests commented on our choice, and your playing, and I would not hesitate for a second in recommending you”
