One option for a memorable ceremony is to release a dove or a number of doves after you have scattered the ashes. Whether one dove, a pair of doves or a small flock, they make a poignant and symbolic gesture. We can arrange this for you.
Expert handlers, with experience and sensitivity for such occasions will bring the doves to your ceremony. At the time of release, the handler can assist you in holding the dove before release, or you can simply open the carrier or basket and let the dove fly out, or the handler can do it all for you. You choose what feels right for you at the time.
The doves can carry a personal message. Simply write it on a piece of soft paper (5mm by 10mm) and the handler will attach it to the dove’s leg before release.
To mark the release, you will receive a Memorial Card – personalised with the name of your loved one plus an organza bag containing naturally moulted white feathers (when available) as a keepsake.
The company is based in London covering Greater London and the south east, north to Milton Keynes, west to Reading, east to Southend and south to Crawley.
Prices are subject to the distance travelled by road to the release site. If the release is on a boat, extra time required by our handler will be factored in.
Prices start from £85 for a single dove and £105 for a pair of doves. Very often when a dove-release is booked, those attending may wish they could release a dove too. So for each additional dove booked, the cost is just £10.
