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.

Such crazy difficult times with lockdown #2, know I am abreast of the latest Government wedding guide lines, you're in good hands.

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 25 years. My experience with flying all over the world has educated me in connecting with all cultures and ethnicities, whether it be looking after Nelson Mandela, the Royal family or taking care of wide eyed refugees flying out of Africa. 

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.

(COVID-19 - Obviously these are challenging times for us all, know I am abreast of all things legally via the Attorney Generals Office, I will do my best for you with any advice in this ever changing landscape... and take care everybody.)

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 I say about Ray? Awesome!! Truly, Ray made our special day unique. Funny, engaging , quirky while keeping the focus on us. We were so lucky, not only to have him as our celebrant, but as MC as well. Our whole event ran without a hitch with a large input from Ray. We have no hesitation recommending Ray to any couple, you are lucky if you manage to book him!

Nothing short of amazing! Ray is certainly the guy you want with you on your special day he keeps everyone and everything running smooth and nothing is too much trouble. Even with covid, Ray along with ourselves Made it all happen! He kept in contact through out the whole journey from the time we picked him to be our guy right up to beyond our special day. Thanks Ray you rock!!!! We loved your upbeat can do personality and thanks for involving the kids and making them feel special too.

Our plans changed completely because of the stricter Covid-19 restrictions in Melbourne. We suddenly had only 3 days to organise something we were planning for months. Getting all the paperwork ready seemed impossible! Ray rang every possible number, communicated with magistrates in and outside Melbourne. He was determined to make it happen! And he did! We were 5 people in our house, and 15 on zoom, scattered all across the world. Ray was like he knew everyone for a long time! He made us laugh, he made us cry, he made us connect deeper with each other! The ceremony was so perfect that we now cannot imagine it any other way. This was an impossible task! It became real only because Ray made it happen; fist by finding the legal window of opportunity but, most importantly, for delivering it in such a fundamentally human way on the day!

Ray was so warm from the beginning and continued to be so throughout the process. He was speedy in his replies, even throughout the pandemic mania, and kept us in the loop at every step and announcement along the way. Our wedding had last minute changes due to government restrictions, however Ray was on top of it all and was able to accomodate our last minute changes (even with less than 24 hours before we were officially married). We were very thankful to have had Ray’s level of service during such unprecedented times, and we very much look forward to having him at our renewal ceremony.

Very special wedding given Covid lockdown, so intimate, we had the neighbours hanging over the fence cheering us on, with masks on of course:) The renewals will be a hoot as we reflect!

We cannot recommend Ray enough to be your celebrant. He made the ceremony extremely fun and entertaining and definitely made us both feel very comfortable at one of the most nerve racking moments of our lives. He catered to what we wanted our ceremony to be like - very light hearted and funny - and he did exactly that. We can't thank you enough Ray! Alexis & Ash

Ray Galea Marriage Celebrant - Celebrant With Wings  

Thank you Alexis, Ash. The helicopter entry was a blast!

Ray is genuinely passionate about his job as celebrant and his personality will bring a memorable touch to your ceremony. He certainly made ours special and made our family members feel included. From the first time we swapped emails with Ray, we knew he was the celebrant for us. His emails were prompt, clear and he was never more a text message away. Ray walked us through the legal paperwork and made it painless and simple. He was also punctual and responsive to all our online and in-person meetings. We had a very small wedding, but Ray made sure that our ceremony was fun, and light-hearted. He was full of energy and guided us through the whole process with a gentle and caring hand. For a hassle-free and memorable ceremony, look no further!

Thomas & Jess, what can I say?! You guys were great, we certainly were challenged weather wise and with late comers, but how cool & not fussed were the two of you! Truly impressed, a joy to look after.

Ray was the celebrant at our wedding back in February. He was absolutely amazing. He has a great outgoing character and is extremely friendly, as well as having great communication skills. He was very flexible with us and helped us with a lot of details in planning the ceremony. He is an absolute delight and pleasure to deal with. We were very lucky to have him do our wedding and I would recommend him to anyone!

Two great men in Aaron and William, with Aaron's Mum playing the Harp, Lisa from all the hype photography, we had a hoot of a time.

Ray was the first and only celebrant we met with. He made the decision easy to choose as all clicked straight away. He was the perfect mixture of fun and serious, appreciating and emphasising the emotional moments of the ceremony, while also keeping it light hearted at the appropriate times. Which is exactly what we wanted! Thank you Ray! You made our perfect. Amy and Mat

A wedding that went so smoothly. Easily done with this affable couple. The guests were super fun too, thank you.

RAY!! Where do we start? You're easy in the top 100 marriage celebrants....kiddiiingg!!! Top 10 for sure ;) Seriously though, you were absolutely perfect for us. From start to finish you had support, advice, information and a general sense of calm and encouragement the whole way through. You answered phone calls, texts and emails promptly and efficiently. With the exchange and guidance of information, you put together an easy flowing and witty ceremony. You also have the right type of personality to have dealt with our crew and made them all laugh and feel at ease. Please be sure to contact us when you're next in Perth and we would be delighted to have a few whiskeys with you. #woulduseagainbutwontneedto

Ray is an incredible celebrant! He made our dream day come to life! He personalised it so well using a questionnaire to help build our story. He made everyone laugh and cry! I couldn’t recommend him more!

We would HIGHLY recommend Ray as a marriage celebrant! He was awesome from start to finish. When we first met Ray, it felt like we'd met a family friend and we knew straight away that we wanted Ray to be part of our special day. Ray was great at reading and managing the wedding audience and provided the perfect mix of a genuine, entertaining, emotional and happy wedding service. Thank you Ray!
