Releasing doves speaks a thousand words and will keep you and your guests talking about it for years to come. Doves choose one partner for life and make this commitment until death. The white dove has been used throughout history as a symbol of Love, Peace, Purity, Faithfulness and Prosperity.
We are always pleased to see potential customers at our home (by appointment) where, with no obligation to hire us, we will show you our range of cages, baskets and equipment and demonstrate releasing and flying doves. You can also handle the doves to give you confidence that you will enjoy the experience on the "big day". If a dove release is not for you, never mind, we will have enjoyed showing off our doves anyway!
It is said that if doves are seen on your wedding day, a happy home is assured. Releasing doves represents the love and commitment you have given to one another this day. Whenever afterwards you see a white dove, you will be reminded of that special day.
Alternatively, for funeral or memorial events such as Woodland Burials, the releasing of a white dove helps to begin the grieving process by opening the doors to "letting go".
At no additional charge, we are able to read out from a selection of original poems from a collection titled Celebrations of Marriage and Life. For those who wish to avail themselves of this service, a poem of their choosing can be read out prior to the doves release. When planning your event just let us know that you're interested and a poem can be chosen in advance from the collection. An example of a wedding poem (Two Become One) is shown on the right hand panel of this page.
Handling doves is not something most people are familiar nor comfortable with. However we offer free familiarisation training where you can practice handling and releasing doves until you are completely confident. Our training will ensure you thoroughly enjoy releasing the doves at your event and will wear a big smile for that all important photo!
