Married By Mandi

Hi, I’m Mandi and I am not your “run of the mill” marriage celebrant! Weddings mean so much more to me than the traditional “lawful wedded husband/wife hoo-hah” because the beauty in a wedding is about celebrating your journey of life and love – and that’s never going to be the same from one couple to the next.

I am an adventure-seeker, animal-lover and travel enthusiast who would love nothing more than the honour of helping you to co-create your unique, fun and memorable wedding ceremony.



MattyT is a solo electric violinist based in Wollongong on the fresh South Coast of New South Wales.

In command of a diverse repertoire spanning classical, pop, film scores, Disney, and beyond, each song is elevated by a professionally arranged backing track (vocals omitted), with the electric violin serenading your guests one sparkling song after another.

MattyT is available for wedding ceremonies, cocktail & canape hour, and even first dances!


Hailing from Wollongong, Matthew Tsalidis is one of the Illawarra’s most active musicians, with performances across the region and beyond.

Matthew began his violin studies at the Wollongong Conservatorium of Music with Scott Taggart, then at the Sydney Conservatorium of Music (University of Sydney), with Dr. Evgeny Sorkin, completing a Bachelor of Music (Performance).

Matthew has performed at the iconic Sydney Opera House, the Capitol and Lyric Theatres, and continues his performance engagements with the George Ellis Orchestra at venues including the State Theatre, Canberra Theatre, Civic Theatre (Newcastle), and City Recital Hall (Sydney).

Matthew has played in and guest led the St George Chamber Orchestra (Sydney), performing alongside members of the Opera Australia Orchestra, and currently plays with Steel City Strings – the Illawarra’s premiere chamber ensemble.

His musical theatre credits include Chicago, Into The Woods, Priscilla – Queen Of The Desert, Singin’ In The Rain, The Little Mermaid, The Sound Of Music, Wicked, Fiddler On The Roof, West Side Story, My Fair Lady, and Strictly Ballroom.

Off stage, Matthew is a dedicated violin teacher through his own studio, and plays solo electric violin at weddings and like events.
