Inclusions and additions:
In order to personalise the release and make it extra special for you, The Psychy Poet, Laurie Wilkinson, who we frequently work with, will be happy to write a poem especially for your occasion. Alternatively we can provide an optional poem, either to be read by us or by you before the release.
Our purpose built, white wicker baskets come decorated with ribbon and flowers to match the theme of your event, just let us know the colours when you book.
How does it work?
Guarantee: With most funerals short notice is inevitable and we guarantee we will work closely with you and your funeral director to ensure the smooth co-ordination of the release and the respectful, stress-free accommodation of your needs.
Arrival: We will arrive at the pre-arranged place in plenty of time and be ready and waiting for you when your service is over and you want to do the release.
Baskets: Baskets will be decorated with ribbon colour of your choice.
Staff: Our experienced and smartly dressed dove handlers will be by your side throughout to take you through the release, show you how to hold the doves and hand them to you if you have chosen a hand release.
Addressing the Congregation: If you have organised for a poem to be read, there will be time before the release for this to be done, by yourself or our staff.
Releasing: Our doves can be released by hand (allowing family members to release individual doves with a personal thought of farewell), or straight from the basket, either by you, a family member, or by us.
After the Release: When all the doves have finished circling and orientating, disappearing over the horizon for home, we will discretely leave. If any of the congregation have questions we will answer them with pleasure.
