“EVERY FLOWER IS A SOUL BLOSSOMING IN NATURE.”
Seek & Bloom Creative Co.
focuses on the slow art of flower pressing while incorporating the modern approach of graphic arts to create designs that feel organic and elegant.
Products are created using pressed and preserved flowers and foliage foraged in the Annapolis Valley, Nova Scotia.
I full heartily believe in supporting local and always strive to collaborate with other local artisans and flower farms to create my products.
With a strong background in graphic arts, stationery design and my love for nature and flowers, pressing flowers provides me with a sense of nostalgia and has calmed my yearning for a more soulful lifestyle. After years as an entrepreneur in the creative industry the transition into Seek & Bloom has felt organic and fulfilling and I have been gratified with this slow, hands on process of creating.
Much Love, Ashley

Preserving your bouquet
The flowers you choose for your wedding bouquet will impact how they press. Locally grown, colourful, wild like flowers and greenery will translate best when dried and pressed. Keep in mind that flowers often fade in the drying process and thicker roses, peonies and white flowers don’t always get the best results. Flowers also need to be provided fresh and cannot be previously dried.
I have a flat fee of $250+tax to preserve and design your new bouquet artwork. You can choose between a recreation of your bouquet or a graphic such as a heart or monogram (for example). The cost of a 11″x14″ matted frame is included in the design fee and will be purchased by S&B. Full payment is due at the time of pickup.
A deposit of $50 is to be made by EMT to hold your wedding date as I have limited space per month for bouquet pressing.
S&B requires your bouquet fresh and preferably within 3 days of your wedding. It spent the majority of your wedding day out of water and flowers need to be as fresh as possible. Any mould or wilting can effect way the flower dries. Flowers need to be hand delivered to me in the Wolfville/New Minas area as soon as possible. The pressing and design process takes approximately a month to complete . You will be contacted with photos of design before any flower is glued down for the final design.
Seek & Bloom Creative Co. will always do the best job possible to make sure your flowers press nicely for your timeless keepsake but if any flower does not work out as planned S&B is not responsible to replace any particular flower that didn’t press well during the dying process.
Flowers have been preserved with lots of love to hold their natural colour as long a possible.Each flower will develop more in character over time and will eventually fade. To hold their colour longer please keep your artwork out of direct sunlight and prevent any moisture from getting to them within the frame. Sunny living spaces and bathrooms may change the way your flowers age over time.
