Ray is such an amazing person! He took everything we wanted and made it happen. His ability to lead our entire wedding party and family through the rehearsal was incredible! His attention to every little detail such as the angel at which each bridesmaid and groomsman were to stand, astounded me! The way he was able to communicate exactly how we would feel and how he would lead us through it was exact, and gave us confidence while we were saying our vows infront of 200 of our friends and family members.
I have been photographing weddings for the past 10 years, and never have I ever met an officiant that has done a better job than Ray Cross!
Book with him, you won't regret it!

Ray Cross was a wonderful officiant; he encapsulated the joyous mood of our civil ceremony and he had everyone smiling—not least of all, us! Easy to deal with and organised every step of the way, even at our short notice, I can't recommend Ray highly enough.

We had Rev. Cross officiate at our recent wedding and couldn't have been happier! We didn't feel comfortable saying a lot during our vows and he tailored them perfectly for us. He made the guests feel at ease and he had a great sense of humour that came through when he spoke. We would definitely recommend Rev. Cross!!

Ray was amazing from the beginning. He made everything very easy and relaxed.
Whenever we had a question, I could email him and he'd reply as soon as he could. (Which wasn't long, at all). He was amazing to work with and when we renew our vows, I will definitely be giving him a call again.
Thank you for being part of our day, we are so glad you were able to be part of it.
I will definitely recommend you to my friends and family. :)

Ray was an amazing help. He directed the rehersal with great leadership and explained clearly to everyone their roles and positions so there would be no confusion. He also helped set a good tone. After our ceremony many guests told us they felt Ray had known us for years because of the personal touches he put into the ceremony. His personality was a great fit. Couldn't have gone better

The Reverend Cross was helpful, accommodating, and friendly. His choice of texts for our vows was inspired and exactly what we wanted. His contribution to our wedding ceremony made the moment even more special for us. We would recommend him with enthusiasm.

If I could give a higher score than 5 I would. Ray was exceptional with his flexibility, diligence and professionalism. He was easily approachable with any questions and/or concerns and he was a true comfort throughout the whole process as he made me feel at ease. His rehearsal was so helpful as he had it very structured and made sure that there was absolutely no confusion as to what the expectations were on the wedding day. He also added some comedic and personal touches into the rehearsal and the ceremony. After our wedding we had many comments on how wonderful Ray was and many people asking for his information! I would highly recommend him to anyone.
