Oh hello, nice to meet you! My name is Mikaelee, and I'm the face behind Flourish! A lover of all things beautiful, I have a special spot in my heart for weddings! My biggest passion is creating beautiful details that add to the story that your wedding communicates.
Having studied Fine Art and History in university, my love of beauty, quality, and design made calligraphy a natural fit. I began to learn calligraphy at a very young age when I came across an old set of calligraphy pens in my mother's desk. Over time, I taught myself the art of lettering, and my style has evolved to a contemporary organic approach as I've grown into it over the last 12 years.
Nature has always been a part of my life- from being outside exploring, reading books from up in a tree, travelling across Europe, and working on a farm and at a local flower shop. Much to my husband's chagrin, there always seems to be flowers in our home and I love to include wild and natural elements in all of my work.
Having lived in Europe, my aesthetic is inspired by classic European forms, nature, and organic colour palettes. I have an eye for quality and beauty, and seek to use the finest products to create carefully curated art. I work with each client to create an authentic experience that reflects their personal story and heart.
Flourish is a contemporary calligraphy, floral, and artistic design business in London, Ontario. We specialize in Fine Art Weddings and events. Our team is all about personalizing your wedding and making things beautiful. This is more than just simple service, it's about consideration of every visual component of your wedding. All the elements and principles of design are considered in order to create a beautiful fine art wedding.
Wedding calligraphy services are available to be sent to any destination, and personal consultation is also available.
In the fleeting moments of a wedding day, and in life in general, our focus is on the gentle and the sincere. Whether in an environment of hundreds of people or with just your closest loved ones, we long to create an atmosphere that tells an intimate, genuine story.
We are available for creative and artistic direction, contemporary calligraphy services, floral design and day-of event co-ordination. If you live outside of London, we are happy to set up a Skype date so that we can connect (because everything is better in person)! We look forward to meeting with you and would be delighted to help create your perfect event!
Now accepting new clients for the 2018-19 wedding season.

I imagine that those you are inviting to share in your special day are people you care deeply for. You have lovingly selected each person you desire to be there, and would want each to feel cherished and adored. With the advent of email and personal messaging, we seldom receive personal mail anymore besides flyers and bills. Share your love and appreciation for your treasured family and friends by sending a beautifully created, exquisite, and luxurious piece of mail that they won't soon forget.
Choose from a carefully curated selection of the highest quality of handmade materials that come together to create a captivating piece of art for the hands.

Our philosophy is that flowers should feel natural in the environment in which they are going to be viewed in. We find joy in collaborating with a couple to create flowers unique to their event; taking inspiration from them, the season, and the surroundings.

If you love fine art weddings as much as I do, but have no idea where to start in the design process, or are perhaps overwhelmed by far too many ideas, then let's get in touch! I love to create a concept that is a perfect extension of who you are!
