Wedding Ceremonies

Give your wedding day, vow renewal or civil partnership that extra special touch.

Your Extra Special Day

Beautiful pure white doves are perfect to give your wedding day that extra special touch.  White Doves have been used for centuries to symbolise purity, peace, faith & love. Doves are released at Weddings because they stay faithful to each other for life and form strong family bonds.

They are very gentle and peaceful birds, highly intelligent, and very nurturing towards their young, returning home to us once released. The releasing of pure white doves is a very symbolic and romantic gesture of your lifelong commitment to each other.

Our bespoke cages and baskets are decorated to the highest standards for your special day, we can include your floral colour theme making each white dove release unique.

Our Birds

If you only ever use a professional White Dove Release specialist company such as ourselves, you can be assured our beautiful White Doves are exceptionally well cared for. They are descended from the Rock Dove and our release Doves all have the strong homing instinct, which together with regular training exercises and a happy home life, where they are free to fly and behave naturally, ensures they return home to us following release.

We invite our prospective couples to our home for a free practice Dove release and to view our birds in their home so you can see for yourself how well cared for they are. Just get in touch to arrange a visit – we’d love to see you!

To find out more about their care have a look at the Bird Welfare Section where you can see them behaving naturally and happily at home.

Beautiful Wedding Display

Our display Doves 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. 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 they do not have the homing instinct of our release Doves. After the ceremony they are taken home in a specially tailor-made darkened carrier so they can rest before being reunited with their flock in their spacious aviary in our garden.

Take a look at our range of packages, we are happy to adapt and change them if you wish? It is your special day and we want to make it extra-special for you.

We especially like to include children as they have a natural love of all animals and they love to feel involved in special occasions.
