The releasing of our pure white doves is a very symbolic gesture showing in very touching ways the unity of two people, peace and love.
The happy couple, civil partners, bridesmaids, groomsmen and page boys, can take part in the releasing of the doves after the wedding ceremony, or during your reception. It's your day and we can help to make it extra special for you.
The release doves can be released from one of our beautiful baskets or by hand adding that extra touch to your photographs.
We also offer display doves, these are two doves that are displayed in beautiful cages either side of the entrance to your wedding venue and afterwards to form a setting to your release photograph. Please note that unlike some companies who display the release doves prior to release our display doves are exceptionally pretty fantails, some with crests or feathered feet and all with beautiful fantails which remain for the whole of the photo shoot. These fantail doves are only for display and will not be released.
As an alternative or in addition you could have a pair of pure white miniature cooing doves in each cage. These doves are small & very, very cute and respond to attention by displaying to your guests.
Releasing the doves speaks a thousand words and will keep you and your guests speaking about it for years to come.
We offer a Wedding Dove release service in Preston, Lancashire and throughout North West England.
