Tropical Empress Wedding couple surrounded by palms and shadows by KGoodPhoto We love the tropical empress wedding details in this inspiration shoot. The Bengal Lounge is a special venue space within the updated Fairmont Empress on Vancouver Island. Rich, carved wood walls and ceilings showcase the classic wedding mood but the designers of this inspiration surprised with bright colours and modern details. 

Tropical Empress Wedding Cake by Allison Shelrud The suspended wedding cake is covered in a modern icing in colours which reflect the table settings, floral and desserts.  Creating a harmonious palette in this venue space draws the eye towards the architectural treasures such as the fireplace and high windows. The window seats are not forgotten as they are lined with candles and framed by palms. 

Groom wearing tux by Moore's Clothing holds bride in low back gown with tattoo at Fairmont EmpressThe bride and groom are a mood all by themselves! Sparkles and lace adorn the low backed gown while the groom sports a classic suit and tie. The boutonniere, on the other hand, was a trendy ‘in the pocket’ collection of floral.  We are in love with the bouquets (a hoop + classic cascading) and boutonniere. The back features on the gown showcase the bride’s tattoo with the covered buttons seemingly continuing on in the same line.

Crystal Glasses reflect Fairmont Empress reception table of tropical flowers by Brown's the Florist The tables are works of art! First, a sweetheart table for the bride and groom including velvet chairs. The couple gets their own area in front of the century fireplace and their table is covered in raspberry linen. It features floral design on the edge and down the front of the table.  Second, a guest table featuring a tower of flowers in the center with floral winding it’s way across the tables and over the ends. Place settings include individual cakes on each plate, colourful name cards and crystal glasses.
