The below reviews have been posted on Google Review and my Easy Weddings Store front. I thank all my couples for going to the trouble of posting them, much appreciated.
(Only the good ones of course!)
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. 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. We highly recommend Ray! Thanks so much Ray,
Matt & Stevie Farrell. (March 2020)
'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!'

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 we picked Ray as our Celebrant. (BC (Before Carona) March 2020)
We picked Ray to be our celebrant because his sense of humour and easy-going nature clicked with us straight away. His attention to detail and professionalism but during the lead-up and on the day helped take a lot of the stress off us. Would recommend. (March 2019)
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. (April 2019)

Ray told our love story and created the feeling of the ceremony, he has a way with words and has found his calling. We stumbled across Ray and once we met we never looked back. Ray takes his job very seriously, was empathetic and
able to draw the emotion and love out of both of us, and we
wouldn't change anything.
Amazing, Ray is very professional, yet brings out your 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. (February 2019)
Ray has always struck me as someone for whom the depth and quality of interpersonal relationships is profoundly important - both his own relationships and those of the people around him. This extends to a belief in the importance of marriage as a foundation of long lasting and deep commitment and as an important aspect of the creation of the family. (Mar 2018)

RAY!! Where do we start? You're easy in the top 100 marriage celebrants....kiddiiing!!! 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

We had a surprise wedding and Ray did such an exceptional job. Ray is an amazing person. Ray was super helpful with every aspect of our journey. Ray was humorous, loving and kind with everything he did for us. Ray did everything we requested and more to make our night special.

Ray made our day perfect!! From the initial meeting until we said I do Ray was there for us. He worked through everything with us step by step and ensured we were happy and comfortable. It was a pleasure having Ray as are celebrant on our big day. (May 2019)
Ray was amazing in every way! He was professional, fun and truly cared about making our special day special. Ray has a genuine passion for what he does and it shows in his commitment to being as flexible as we needed whilst also providing us with an extremely personalised experience. We loved him! Thanks again Ray, it wouldn't have been the same without you. Cheers, Skye & George. (July 2019)
Ray was very accommodating of our special needs on a very short notice wedding. He did a great job at both our Commitment Ceremony and our Official Marriage Ceremony. Ray was easy to work with, responsive and made the process easy. (Aug 2019)
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! (Jan 2020)
Do it! Get Ray to be your celebrant and /or MC! Thanks so much Ray for making our day and the lead up a really fun and relaxing experience. Loved every minute of it.
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! (Jan 2020)
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! (Oct 2109)
Ray was super friendly and accommodating to our needs. He helped make the whole experience feel extra special for us. Thank you so much Ray! (Aug 2019)
Ray was very kind and nice to help us to understand each processes. He takes his spare time to explain all the details of the official documents.
*This wedding was conducted with a Chinese interpreter for the Groom Hezhang. (June 2019)
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. (Feb 2020)
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! '

Ray was absolutely lovely. Our ceremony was tailored to us and reflected who we are without fuss. 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! (Dec 2019)
We found Ray on the internet. Ours is a last minute change of the date. Thanks God Ray was available the 1st of January. When we first saw him we were captivated by his bubbly attitude and warm smile. He's very professional and detail-oriented. He meticulously explained to us the whole process. That made us decide that he's definitely the one. Ray was very thoughtful and offered us his loft as the venue of our wedding. That made us love him even more. Ray deserves more than just 5-stars. More power to you Ray!
Much love, May & Lovern. (Jan 2020)
