"What happens to the doves after they are released?"
We would like to assure you that our birds are safe after their release. Celebration Doves are award winning pure white rock doves. They are very carefully bred and each bird receives thorough training before being released to be sure they will get home safely. We are dedicated to the health and welfare of our birds; this shows in their enthusiastic performance and their snow-white appearance.
"Do they come back to the cage?"
After their release the doves usually circle in the sky above a couple of times, they then fly off safely to their home.
"Do you deliver the doves? It's a Church Wedding."
Yes, we offer a highly professional service and once we have discussed the various ways our doves can make your day even more special, the cages, trimmings and birds are brought to your wedding venue. The doves wait outside the church in an elegant Victorian style cage while your service takes place inside. After the service, when the bridal party and guests make their way outside there is a beautiful reading exclusive to Celebration Doves.
The Bride and Groom release their doves in co-ordination with the photographer and videographer who can capture the moment of this very symbolic gesture, which heralds the beginning of your new life together. Afterwards the cage is discreetly taken away.
"How does it work when it's a Garden Wedding?"
The doves compliment your garden setting as they watch and listen while you make your marriage vows. The final part of your ceremony can include our beautiful 'Wedding Wish'. The doves are then released in co-ordination with your photographer.
"What happens if it rains?"
Our birds quite like a light shower, however in the interest of their safety we do reserve the right to cancel in the event of severe weather like strong wind, rain or extreme heat. This would be rare and the odds of good weather are definitely in your favour but we understand the disappointment and will suggest ways you can have your doves without releasing them or refund your money less any expenses already incurred.
"We don’t promise more than you get, but we hope you get more than you expect."
