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 make a wedding hum. Who wants a one size fits all monologue that you endure just to get to the party?
So, what's my story?
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 Set List
Track 1 - MEET over a bevvy of your liking
Track 2 - BOOK and secure date with deposit
Track 3 - COMPLETE the legal paperwork together
Track 4 - WRITE a killer ceremony
Track 5 - REHEARSE and ensure everything is match ready
Track 6 - PERFORM the Main Gig - W000000t!
Track 7 - SEND (legals)
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 MC gigs, Legals Only marriages and Funerals.
I’m a big believer in the right of all loving couples to be married, whatever their sexuality.
Wanna just get hitched without any fuss? My Legals Only package includes a single meeting then 128 legal words on the day and all your paperwork prepped and lodged. Available weekdays between 10-2 at a local cafe in Brunswick.
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.
As you may have guessed from my bio, I love a good gig! Here's the word from my peeps on my celebrant skillz. Or if you're looking for more, click the button below to check out my Facebook reviews.

'Nat absolutely MADE our ceremony and my husband and I could not recommend her more highly.
We had so many people come up to us and tell us that Nat is THE BEST CELEBRANT THEY HAVE EVER SEEN it is simply not funny.
Everyone cried. Everyone laughed. Everyone cheered.
It was simply amazing and, if we had to do it again, we couldn't possibly imagine doing it without her.

No questions. Just do it. You won't regret it.'
LINDSAY & JUSTIN - APR 2018
'Nat is an absolute LEGEND!
My husband and I feel so lucky to of had Nat be the one to marry us.
From first meeting Nat was so lovely, helpful, hilarious, and honestly made us feel like we had been friends with her for years.
She took the time to get to know us and that really made a difference on the day.
We often bump into Nat at our local cafe, which is really lovely because she is just straight up an awesome person (with great taste in music).
I would give her 1000 stars if I could, but 5 will have to do.'
