Dove Release for Funerals

The white dove, of course, has been seen throughout the ages as a sign of peace; as such, it brings a very poignant and serene tribute to a very emotionally charged day.

Following a service, the gathered mourners can see a beautiful white dove displayed in its’ cage, waiting to carry the spirit of their loved one high into the skies above. A few words are spoken to explain the symbolism, and then a touching verse is read to the congregation before the dove is taken and passed to a close member of the family.

They may hold and caress the bird, even kiss it, before releasing it to fly upwards carrying their love to accompany the spirit of their loved one on the next journey.

Pay your respects, share your love with our Dove Release for Funerals service, a moment to reflect, a moment to remember.

I would like to say...

that I have conducted both funerals and weddings that Jill and her doves have been a beautiful part of. Jill’s approach, humility and genuine warmth cannot be beaten. She has a beautiful way about her and her birds are truly lovely. I would highly recommend wings for love for your occasion.

The dove release...

that you arranged for my Fathers’ funeral was just breath-taking, it was the perfect way for us to say “goodbye” and lifted our spirits on such a sad day
