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 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!

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.

Ray captured our relationship in all the best ways and he made our ceremony better than we could ever hope! Thanks so much for creating the perfect wedding for us Ray!

Ray is truely the best! As soon as we met him we knew we had found the right Celebrant. He set the tone for a fun, loving ceremony. He made us feel comfortable and relaxed throughout the whole process. Our video failed on the day and Ray stepped in and organised everything so we could capture our special moments. We can not thank Ray enough for all the support and guidance. If you are looking for a celebrant, look no further than Celebrant with Wings!

Loved doing Bethany and Elvin's wedding. The location was spectacular, their family property in outer Melbourne which has the most beautiful Spanish Villa Hacienda (home) outside of Spain I've seen.

Without Ray being flexible with his time, his availability and working around the restrictions of Covid in Melbourne, we would not have been able to turn our wedding ceremony around in a week. He was born to be a Marriage Celebrant! Ray has the right personality for this specialised service and I can highly recommend to anyone looking for a fun, well presented and professional Marriage Celebrant.

One of those wonderful last minute weddings, so glad I could help and make you day happen. You are an amazing vibrant beautiful couple, congrats.

The ceremony that Ray put together for us was amazing. It was exactly what we wanted and it captured the story of us perfectly. Ray has a wonderful gift of being funny and light hearted but also professional and serious when getting down to the legalities. We would definitely recommend Ray as a celebrant

My dearest Pip, and Justin. Such an honour to still be part of your day though Covid border restrictions kept us apart. The zoom wedding was great, and hearing my ceremony was a buzz.

10 Oct 2020

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.

What a thrill to marry people again!! I even got to escape Melbourne to beautiful Port Fairy to marry this beautiful couple and also to meet Katie's 3 beautiful sons. Thank you, your wedding has revitalized my soul.

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!

Wow, what a ride we had achieving a shortening of time via the BDM in just 48 hours with wedding shutdown looming due to Covid! A beautiful couple, we zoomed from all over the world, they watched the 5 of us have an amazing wedding in Dasa and Kostas' tiny apartment.

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!

The BEST in the business and a total Ray of sunshine! We couldn't have found a better Celebrant and MC to help us create and host the day of our dreams. We clicked with Ray from the very first catch up and knew immediately that he was the right fit as he encapsulated everything we were looking for. His gentle yet vibrant personality makes you feel relaxed and energised and it's very clear that he is genuinely passionate about this job. Ray is highly professional, knowledgeable, insanely creative and delivered the most beautiful ceremony that left our guests both laughing and crying with happiness! Ray, we wish you every success and only hope more couples get to experience the same joy we did while working with you. Your contribution to the wedding industry is truly groundbreaking and we cannot thank you enough – Mr & Mrs Sceney

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!

15 Mar 2020

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!

Gracias, de nada, mi placer. Beautiful private location, and so intimate and joyful.

Ray was great in both the lead up and on the day, highly recommended. He was always responsive to our questions, changes and scheduling and made sure the day ran as smooth as possible for us. Always took the time out to make sure everything was right! Thanks again Ray!
