  • "Joanne & Stratton - Hedingham Castle"
    This testimonial was entered by Scintillo String Quartet on 22 July 2019

    We had Scintillo String Quartet for our wedding this year. The moment we heard them play 'It Must Be Love' at the Hedingham Castle open day we fell in love with their music and just had to have Scintillo String Quartet playing on our wedding day. All of our guests loved all of their music, especially us, and made our day even more special. Thank you Chris - you have made us feel welcome and happy that we chose your string quartet. You are all brilliant at what you do, I will be recommending you to others.

  • "Aimee & Martin - The Fennes"
    This testimonial was entered by Scintillo String Quartet on 22 July 2019

    We had Chris and the guys for our wedding a couple of weeks ago and I truly do not have enough words to explain how amazing they are. Chris was so good in terms of communication in the run up to the day which was amazing. And on the day they were simply perfect. We’ve had so many people comment about how good they were and they’ve truly contributed to memories that will last a lifetime. The only regret we have is not being able to say thank you enough to them on the day! If you’re in any doubt as to hire these guys then definitely do it, you will not regret it at all!!

Frequently Asked Questions

What is your starting price?

Our fees will sometimes vary, depending on the duration and location of the booking, but are always inclusive of travel so that there aren't any extras for you to have to pay at a later date. Please contact us for a no-obligation quote.

What services do you offer?

High quality, live, acoustic string music for weddings, events, and concerts...in fact we can tailor our music to any social occasion wether it be formal or informal.

What is included in the wedding package?

We can play for any part of your wedding day. This may include pre-ceremony and during your wedding ceremony, your drinks reception and/or wedding breakfast. We have also performed music as evening entertainment and during the first dance for many newlyweds.

How far in advance should I contact you?

We currently have bookings in our diary which are up to three years away - we recommend our clients book as early as possible to secure our services and to avoid disappointment.

Are you able to travel?

Yes - the Scintillo String Quartet performs extensively across East Anglia and throughout Suffolk, Essex, Norfolk, Cambridgeshire and London.

Is there a charge for travelling?

We always quote a total price for our bookings and any travel charge is included within the quote we send our clients.

Do you work alone or do you have a team of professionals?

The Scintillo String Quartet comprises a small pool of professional string players who regularly work together. This allows us to cover holidays, sickness or if one of our core players is unavailable, whilst ensuring that the high quality standard of the quartet is maintained at all times.

What is the length of time of the act?

We always quote a total price for our bookings and any travel charge is included within the quote we send our clients.

What are the forms of payment?

We accept payment via bank transfer or cheque.

Our wedding is taking place in two venues - are you happy to travel to both?

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.

Are you happy to perform outside?

We often play outside and are more than happy to do so, weather permitting of course. We are unable to sit in full sun 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 your venue. We are unable to play outside if there is rain, strong wind or during cold weather.

How do we secure your services for our day?

If you would like to accept a quote from us, in order to secure our services we do issue a contract and ask for a deposit payment of £100. The final balance is due one month in advance of your event date.

We would like a piece of music which isn't in your repertoire - can you help us with this?

Yes! The Scintillo String Quartet offers a music arrangement service for pieces which have not previously been published for string quartet. If we do not already hold a particular piece in our extensive repertoire and cannot source the music from elsewhere, we can probably arrange it for you. We would of course need adequate notice and there is sometimes an additional fee for this service. Please contact us for further information.
