Our florists make unforgettable floral arrangements for bouquets, buttonholes and dreamy decorations. The Albany region also produces beautiful seasonal blooms for those wanting unique natives, so why not liven up your bouquet with local kangaroo paws, proteas and grevilleas.

4. An Albany wedding doubles as a honeymoon

Albany is a popular holiday getaway less than an hour away by air and a mere 4.5 hours by road from W.A.’s capital, Perth. For those considering a destination wedding, you’ll get a fantastic holiday for you and your guests, as well as a memorable wedding on one of the most beautiful and diverse coastlines in Australia.
