OVERVIEW

It's an honour and privilege having the best seat in the house, this is a family and friends event, so lets relax and enjoy ourselves:)

Welcome aboard, congratulations on your engagement.

Weddings! I'm sure you have all experienced the boring, cringe worthy Ceremony...this was my compelling moment.

I became a Celebrant and vowed to create fun, engaging, bespoke ceremonies, conscious of whom the stars of the day are...you.

Your Wedding is a family and loved ones event. I embrace and engage everybody as soon as they arrive, and ensure all are in the moment.

The “Celebrant with wings”- Why? Well, I am also an International Flight Attendant, have been for 30 years. My experience with flying all over the world has educated me in connecting with all cultures and ethnicities, whether it be looking after people such as Nelson Mandela, dignitaries, celebreties or taking care of wide eyed refugees flying out of Africa. (Happy to deliver a phrase in any language too)

I also MC for all types of events. Being the Master of ceremonies and marrying you can be a fun more personal combo.

Fitzroy being home, Melbourne my backyard:) I enjoy a drive, so travel State wide not an issue.

If you desire a simple elopement/Registry style wedding, can do.

Easiest way to get to know me is a quick chat or better yet meet up.

About

Boring, cringe worthy Ceremonies... My inspiration in becoming a Celebrant! Your Wedding should be the highlight of the day, inclusive, fun, and an experience for you and your loved ones to relish. 25 years with Qantas, including being Flight MC for special Qantas/Constellation Journey charters around the world. (https://www.constellationjourneys.com.au/) I love languages, speaking Maltese and ok Spanish. eg: I've spoken phrases in Vietnamese, Korean, Italian, etc, my wedding guests love it.

Ray was absolutely amazing. He completely made the day/night. We hired him as our celebrant and MC. From laughs with our guests to photos with the kids he was fantastic. He was well worth every cent and more. Thank you Ray, our day was just as we imagined and more.

April 2020

Ray was amazing as our Celebrant and well and truly went above and beyond. Ray was super helpful in planning our Ceremony and made us feel comfortable the entire time. Due to COVID-19 our Wedding was going to be cancelled and we only had 2hrs until the Government declared Weddings were no longer possible, we called Ray and within the 2hrs Ray was able to meet with us and close family to have a small intimate wedding! Really above and beyond, and very much appreciated by us and the family. We highly recommend Ray! The entire process it felt Ray really cared for us, believed in love and marriage, and without him we would have been much more stressed. Thanks so much Ray, Matt & Stevie Farrell

Probably the most emotional and satisfying wedding I've ever conducted given the impact of COVID19 and the stress of marrying this gorgeous couple with just 2 hours notice! It was an honour.

Few can write a script with stories and anecdotes provided by a couple and then bring life to the story at the ceremony and entertain everyone. Ray is one of the few. You get more than just the trademark white glasses (which I must add is very trendy). You get someone who is happy to take charge of everything at the ceremony and then more as we both were not quite sure what to expect from a ceremony. Ray guided us through the ceremony and whatever doubts we had whether it was too long and whether it was draggy was immediately dealt with and he made us comfortable knowing we had nothing to worry about the day itself. Ray made the ceremony interesting and very lighthearted. He transitioned from funny to serious effortlessly and I am so glad I picked Ray as my celebrant.

Rui and Carmen. Their story provided me with such fantastic material, their ceremony was so much fun to write, we had genuine joy and heaps of laughter through out. The interaction with Carmen's Mum and Dad during the Ceremony was a highlight. I love these guys.

What can we say? Right from the first meeting Ray was amazing. The service he provided was second to none and we are both very happy we chose him as our Wedding Celebrant. Our ceremony was the relaxed, happy, sparkling ceremony we were hoping for. Ray has a great sense of humour and kept our guests entertained. We highly recommend him and would use him again if the opportunity arose haha. Thank you Ray, you helped make our day one to remember. Claude and Andy Trevisan

Ray was our wedding celebrant, and he was fantastic to work with from the very first meeting. Ray was easy to talk to and listened to our wants to make our ceremony ours. Ray made the process easy for us and helped us build our dream ceremony. Thank you Ray!

Is it OK to ask a celebrant to wear a costume at our wedding?

Hello! I've read some responses to celebrants dressing in a matching style etc. Is it rude to ask if they wouldn't mind wearing a costume? I've read somewhere a couple got married by batman and then the obvious Elvis option.. I like the idea of an iconic character and think it would be something to remember but wouldn't want to offend anyone or make it a bad experience. TIA

Ray Galea Marriage Celebrant - Celebrant With Wings

Yes it is! I have dressed up at surprise weddings as Borat and a waiter, an absolute hoot.

My next surprise wedding my disguise will be as a photgrapher! Now when one does you do have to play the part thus your acting skills are important.

Of course this is still up to each individual Celebrant, so it is a matter of finding an agreeable Celebrant.

It can be such great fun, good luck.

Where can I get a notice of intended marriage form?

Is this something that I have to find myself?

Ray Galea Marriage Celebrant - Celebrant With Wings

Your Celebrant once appointed can provide you with the NOIM form. They will also guide you in completion and also lodge at Births, Deaths and Marriages Registry once relavant document (eg: passports or birth certificates) are sighted and witnessed by an authorised authority. You can also source yourself from the Attorney General's Department website, or just use this link to directely download document. https://www.ag.gov.au/FamiliesAndMarriage/Marriage/Pages/Forms.aspx#_Forms

Fun celebrants?

Looking for someone who can make our wedding unique and a bit more fun!

Ray Galea Marriage Celebrant - Celebrant With Wings

Fun for me as a Celebrant comes naturally. The key is for it not to be contrived or rehearsed, but how do we achieve this? Chemistry... between the couple, myself and the audience. The skill to ad lib is vital, not everybody can do this and is something that just flows with the moment but being mindful of whom the stars are, the marrying couple. My skill is in my writing and seazing the moment with a pause, a look, a quick barb or simple banter with those involved.

So, call me... Celebrant with wings:)
