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.

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.

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.

Thank Tara, Adam, Kyiah and baby Payton. A beautiful family to deal with, you all made it a special day.

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.

Ray Galea was our marriage celebrant on 3rd April 2021. From our initial meeting Ray made us feel comfortable and at ease with the process. He was able to meet our short time frame without any compromise on quality of service. Ray kept in close contact and kept us updated on what was needed. The ceremony he put together for us was very personal and he articulated our story with great skill. He also provided many good suggestions that we incorporated into the ceremony. On the day Ray was able to provide a ceremony the we and our guests really enjoyed and will remember forever. He was witty, spontaneous and engaged our guests and close loved ones. We had the most lovely experience with Ray before, during and after the wedding and we would highly recommend him as your marriage celebrant. Marija and George

Ray made our wedding day a breeze. His excellent communication skills and warm and funny nature made him the perfect celebrant for us. Guests at our wedding loved Ray and said it was the best wedding they had been to. Ray let us choose what we wanted to do but also gave us plenty of suggestions to make our vows original and from the heart. He was there for me even when we were freaking out about another lockdown ruining our big day! Ray, thank you so much for delivering such a heartfelt and personable service for an unforgettable day.

Ray was an absolute gem to work with. From day one working with him and meeting via video chat thanks to covid he made us feel so comfortable and at ease. He went above and beyond to make sure our wedding day was perfect and that it was. We would definitely recommend ray and couldn’t be happier with his service. Thankyou so much for being apart of our wedding day.

Ray was absolutely amazing! So many times did he make us laugh. He made our ceremony memorable emotional but also lots of fun and jokes. Highly recommend for a fun wedding!

We connected with Ray when we first met up for a coffee. He was very easy to chat to and he suited the style of our wedding - stylish with a good mix of serious and humour. He also made it easier for us by being our MC as well.

Chemistry is so important, something Manuela, Tony and I had in spades which made for a sensational wedding.

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!
