Nat Sproal is a warm, genuine and slightly cheeky Melbourne celebrant specialising in weddings with personality; fun celebrations full of heart and good vibes.
If you’ve seen a great celebrant in action you’ll appreciate how much they enhance the experience. Who wants a one size fits all monologue that you endure just to get to the party?
So, why pick me?
I'm old enough to have had a bit of life experience, yet young enough to still be in the loop, keeping things fresh and relevant. I'm a seasoned traveller. I love good tunes and I’m a bit of a foodie. I love a good red wine or a well made G + T.
After 23 years as a nurse I can pretty much talk to anyone, handle anything and I've got an eye for detail. It's the little things.
Not much surprises me or rattles me. I'm thoughtful and empathetic - I've got you.
I will write and deliver you a cracking ceremony - guaranteed no cheese. Just a genuine, intimate and personal ceremony delivered with warmth, humour and a little bit of cheek. Plenty of smiles, laughs and perhaps even a few tears.
HOW I ROLL
There's a lot that goes into making sure each ceremony into a unique celebration of you and your partner. From initial meeting to the big day and everything in between I'm with you every step of the way. Below is an overview of my process.

THE LINER NOTES (A LITTLE MORE DETAIL)
I’ll do a lot of un-awks recon to get your story and see what makes you guys tick. This helps me put together a cracking ceremony that’s 100% YOU. I’ll be with you the entire way to explain, clarify, suggest and refine.
Upon booking I’ll send you a resource file, full of bright ideas - cool readings, vows, tunes etc. A veritable goldmine.
I’ll bring my awesome PA system so the ceremony is crystal clear. I even have a Madonna mike. Strike a pose etc.
I’ll be at your ceremony an hour prior in some fitting gear for the occasion. I’ll ensure all legal paperwork is mickey mouse and lodge it next business day after your gig.
My pricing is very competitive, but you get what you pay for.
If you’re looking for an awesome, memorable bespoke ceremony that celebrates you as a couple and connects with your guests, as well as a calm and steady hand to guide you along the way then I’m an absolute bargain.
If you’re looking to compare my services to someone you found on Gumtree, I'm probs not your girl.
AVAILABLE FOR A RANGE OF GIGS
I do all sorts of ceremonies, not just weddings. I'm also available for Naming Days, Renewal of Vows and Funerals.
I’m a big believer in the right of all loving couples to be married, whatever their sexuality.
Usually performed on a bub’s first birthday, a Naming Day welcomes a baby to the family- a bit like a secular version of a christening. These can be particularly poignant to celebrate the addition of an adopted or fostered child.
I see funerals as an important responsibility to celebrate, honour, remember and see off a loved one in a personal and respectful manner.
I loved palliative nursing for the satisfaction of knowing I made a difference to a family’s grief experience. I will bring this sensitivity and compassion to funeral ceremonies as well.
Still in love with each other after all these years and want to celebrate it?! Get those old loved up vibes going with a renewal ceremony.
I’ll design a beautifully personalised ceremony honouring the story of your lives since you were married the first time, and your hopes and dreams for the future.
'Nat was incredibly professional and our guests commented on how beautifully she told our story of love. Nat spoke sincerely and kept the vibe relaxed. Our consultations were easy and Nat took care of everything. Her follow up after the wedding was amazing and we could not recommend her more highly'- Chloe and Lydon (Nov 2017)
'Within one meeting with we knew we had the right person- authentic, laidback and organised.
Nat was so helpful and put together a beautiful tale of our love. On the day she absolutely nailed it!!! Her words and voice telling our story while keeping the guests engaged was everything we could have asked for'- Kerri and Jeff (Nov 2017)
