White doves to release at a funeral or wedding.


Our birds are raised on Anglesey near Red Wharf Bay and are trained to fly home from anywhere in North Wales.

Their training starts at around fifteen weeks old, when they are let out of their loft to acustom themselves with their surroundings.

Over the next few months they are then taken further afield until they have familiarised themselves with local landmarks and topography of the the surrounding area, which they then imprint on their minds, helping them to find their way home.

You are welcome to call and see the doves and their home before your event.


We have public liability insurance and are recommended by most funeral directors for our area.


Can I release a white dove by hand at my wedding or at a funeral ?
Yes, you can release the white dove by hand or choose to release the doves from a heart shaped basket.


Why do you release doves at a wedding or funeral?

The doves are pure white and represent love, peace and purity. A white dove release offers a soothing touch in a time of sadness and sorrow. It leaves those present with a feeling of hope for the departed at a funeral, or a feeling of joy for the happy couple at a wedding.


It has been reported that some people release untrained white doves at weddings and funerals - these birds are garden fantail doves that will perish in the wild. This is why you should never do a self release as it is cruel and  you can be fined by the R.S.P.C.A. You should always book a white dove release company.
