Based in Hove, East Sussex, mother and daughter team, Viv Lambert and Laura Folan, have about 50 doves that sleep each night in purpose built lofts and fly free all day.
Raised by, cared for and very used to us, they are available for weddings, funerals, memorials, community and charitable events and parties within a 25 mile radius of Brighton.
Lambert’s White Dove Release was started in London over 10 years ago by Clive Lambert, Viv’s cousin, and in 2014 following the death of her mother and the release of 2 of Clive’s doves at the funeral, Viv and Laura fell in love with these beautiful birds and the joy and comfort releasing them brought.
As a result, after having two dove lofts constructed in their respective gardens, they bought some babies down from the London flock and, under Clive’s expert guidance, started LWDR-Brighton.
Two years ago LWDR-Brighton and Sussex Doves merged to become the No.1 dove release company in Sussex, bringing you over two decades of experience in raising, caring for and releasing white doves.
We have a close relationship with, and are very proud of, our healthy and well cared for birds. They fly free all day, every day, and are only shut in their lofts over night for safety.
Only mature birds, trained to return home, are taken on releases. Since their welfare is our first concern, we reserve the right to postpone or cancel a release in adverse weather conditions or poor winter light and will arrange an alternative date or offer a full refund.
Clients are welcome to arrange a visit to see our doves at home. There are also a number of photographs and videos on our Facebook page where you can see them both in their lofts and flying free in the garden.
