Happily Ever After Begins at Canada’s Castle on the Coast


Dreaming of a fairytale wedding at a castle? Fairmont Empress makes wedding dreams come true. Walk the aisle through our fragrant rose garden under a West Coast summer sun. Waltz as a newly married couple for the first time under the turn-of-the-century vaulted ceiling and antique chandeliers of the iconic Crystal Ballroom, and toast your love as the sun sets over the sparkling Inner Harbour, with fabulous shades of pink and purple.


Since opening in January 1908, The Empress has served as the social hub of Victoria. Not only is the iconic hotel the undisputed Queen of culture and luxury in Victoria, BC — it is the gateway to the natural beauty of Vancouver Island. Gather your guests in one of the world’s most romantic cities, get ready to indulge in royal decadence and begin your life journey together in cultured West Coast style. Here’s to you!
