I am Jeanette Anne Dillworth, authorised Civil Marriage Celebrant and Justice of the Peace.
My passion is making sure that the warmth, happiness and elation you feel after your ceremony, stays with you always.
Where will your wedding be? Penrith, Glenmore Park, Cranebrook or one of many places in the Blue Mountains or behaps Richmond, Windsor or another lovely spot in the Hawkesbury Area. Not forgetting Camden, Campbelltown and the Macarthur area also have some wonderful locations. These are just some of the great places I conduct ceremonies.
Ceremonies are a joyous occasion in which family and friends gather to commemorate an event. Whether it be for a Wedding, Naming, Vow Renewal or a Commitment ceremony, words, music, poems and readings all say what is in our hearts.
A civil ceremony gives you the freedom to have your ceremony wherever, whenever and however you like. Whether it be traditional or light hearted, your ceremony can be designed to meet your greatest dreams incorporate your family traditions, culture and memories.
While wedding ceremonies require a small amount of legal wording, the bulk of the ceremony can be tailored to include words of your own (such as poems or readings) or you can choose from a selection provided. The design of the ceremony will also take into account your thoughts, feelings, and ideas. The role of a Celebrant is to help you put all of these into a lasting memory.
Other important roles of the Marriage Celebrant include the delivery of your ceremony in a professional manner and to ensure the correct paperwork is completed and submitted to Births Deaths and Marriages. Being a member of the Australian Federation of Civil Celebrants keeps me up to date with any changes to requirements as well as gaining fresh ideas.
When choosing your Celebrant, you should feel comfortable, relaxed and confident that he/she will suit your needs for your special day. Like myself, most Celebrants offer a free face to face meeting for you to decide if the Celebrant is right for you.
I cannot express in words the joy I feel when helping couples or families design their ceremony. After conducting the ceremony, the knowledge that I have helped a couple become man and wife, or a family to have a cherished memory, keeps a smile on my face for days. It would be a great privilege to be chosen as your Celebrant.
