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, I’m Ray Galea, your Marriage Celebrant /MC, and of course... congratulations! 

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, bepsoke 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 you 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. 

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

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

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.

Need some duty free champagne? Got that covered too:)

(COVID19 - 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.)

From the moment we met Ray, we knew he was the one. We watched him marry my brother and his beautiful wife and enjoyed his easy going and caring manner. Ray was fun to work with, especially in the lead up to our wedding. At all times he was the consummate professional and made the entire process a joy. Ray’s attention to detail and the way he conducted our ceremony was moving and loving and this was affirmed by all our family who attended. Ray’s ability to injected humour into the event, added to the fun and relaxed manner of our wedding. We would not hesitate in recommending Ray if you are trying to decide on a celebrant for your wedding. He is simply the best!

Thanks Jane! Marrying your brother was too much fun and then to marry you and Tristan felt like a fun re-union for all.

When hiring Ray you are guaranteed a ceremony that you will never forget. After the first meeting he knew what we were hoping for and we worked together for that dream. Both professional and passionate, he knew how to work a room and made sure we were as calm as we can be on our day. I can't say thank you enough to Ray.

A delight being Linda and Brenton's Celebrant. Such an easy going couple to work with, they made my job a breeze and it was a joy seeing their faces light up as such during the ceremony. Again, a privilege to be able to marry such lovely people.

Amazing, Ray is very professional, yet brings out your love story and the best of each of us. He made our day, he was witty, yet reserved and professional. Can not recommend Ray highly enough. Ray told our love story and created the feeling of the ceremony, he has a way with words and is has found is calling. We stumbled across Ray and once we met we never looked back. Ray takes his job very seriously, was empathetic and able to drawn the emotion and love out of both of us, and we wouldn’t change anything.

It's very easy to deliver a beautiful ceremony when working with two such beautiful ladies in Rebecca and Megan. Their story unfolded before me so naturally. We developed and wonderful chemistry that transpired into the most fun, elegant, inspirational of weddings. Truly a privilege being their chosen Celebrant. Thank you Bec and Meg:)

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

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

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!

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!

You had a beautiful fun story, reflective of the two of you, thank you Jacinta and Steve

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!

Thank you Charmaine, Cale. My pleasure looking after you and your family, was a lovely little boutique wedding we had.

11 Jan 2020

Ray made the time to get to know us as a couple through the meetings we had with him. He was very professional as a celebrant and MC on the Wedding Day. The only slight issue was the pronunciation of some family member's names but all-in-all very good.

Korean is not easy, but Im working on it:) Love the challenge of speaking in different languages, a greeting in one's native tongue always gets a smile. Thank you Narai and Marco, a pleasure.

Ray = amazing! He also MC'd our reception. Ray was knowledgable and fun, understood our vibe and goals and was honest and reliable. Thanks Ray!

Thank you Lauren, Reece. It's all about you the couple and your clan. What fun we had!

It was really an honor to have Ray as our celebrant. We've found him on the internet because ours is a last minute change of date. Thanks God his available as the date we've selected was the the 1st of January which is New Year's Day. We decided for a quick meet-up in Singapore. When we saw him, right there and then we decided that he's the one. We were captivated by his bubbly attitude and warm smile. He's very keen to details and explained to us meticulously from the process of the marriage registration up to what to expect during the wedding. Ray was kind enough to offer his loft as our wedding venue. That made us love him even more. During the wedding, we were comforted by Ray's lovely words which is genuinely touching. We in fact cried during the rites as Ray. Definitely deserves more than 5stars.

May and Lovern. It was a very emotional ceremony. The fact you cannot legally marry in your home country Singapore amplified the moment, the joy. You made me shed a tear also, thank you ladies.

Ray was absolutely lovely. Our ceremony was tailored to us and reflected who we are without fuzz. Ray took the time to get to know us so messages were aligned with what we wanted for our big day. We feel very lucky we had him as we didn’t want a traditional wedding and he welcomed our ideas and worked with us to make it perfect. Ray is a very warm, funny and generous person and everyone loved him. If you had 6 starts we will rate him that!

Thank you Rosmery & Harry. Such a fun unique wedding. The way the 3 of us gelled was just beautiful for the ceremony we delivered together. Muchas gracias por tu y tu familia.

We are really glad we picked Ray to be our celebrant. He was very supportive and professional from the beginning. It was clear he took his role very seriously and went above and beyond to assist us to develop a ceremony that we really wanted. He was able to deliver a moving ceremony with humour at the right moments! We had a lot of great feedback from our guests . We are also thankful in his support setting up our outdoor ceremony - we had some hiccups with rain etc but Ray was complete professional and was able to keep my husband calm. We would highly recommend Ray to any couples looking for a celebrant! Natasha & Leo.

Such a delightful and easy couple to work with. Yes, we had some challenges on the day but that's my job ensuring my bride and groom have no worries in the knowledge I have things under control.

Could not ask for a better Celebrant. All our friends and family were raving about Ray by the end of the night - Highly recommend!!!
