F.A.Q


About our birds

We are a member of the National Pigeon Association, so in keeping with the strict criteria in the housing, transporting, and welfare of our birds.

we carry a full public liability insurance.

We have Diamond Doves, Indian Fantails, And Beacheart White Pigeons, they fly around the grounds here on a daily basis, and roost in their clean and suitable aviary and lofts.

Times occur when a hen is sitting on eggs or young then for obvious reasons cannot take part in a release.

Our birds are all white birds and trained to return home after the release, the doves can be used more locally but the Beachearts will travel home from 200 miles or more, they are bred as cross channel flyers and often used for racing. 

Please read before booking

Please check the availability of dates before booking.

If on your ceremony day the weather is ie rain, high winds or other adverse conditions, we reserve the right to cancel the release. However in such an instance you would be given the option of the deposit being refunded, or the doves could be present for display only.

We aim to be as unobtrusive as possible at your event, a coordinator will be in nearby attendance prior to the birds release. Whom will be polite, professional and appropriately dressed.

The timing and location of your release is entirely your choice, usually directly after the service during the photo shoot. However the birds cannot be released close to sunset and must be given time to fly home before dark.

They are on a particular feeding plan so as trying to avoid deposit mishaps on the day, however that cannot be guaranteed so wipes will be on hand.

The doves will be clean and healthy, and presented best we can.,if released by hand you will be shown how to hold the dove. (we usually bring a spare bird in case of a slip up.)

We do have a small 2.5m x 2.5m white marquee if required for additional £40.00
The display cage ribbons and flowers could be colour coordinated with your colour scheme if required.
please enquire.
