As part of our 52 Rituals and Traditions segment we have chosen to have a look at the Dove Release which can be a beautiful and symbolic addition to any ceremony.

"White doves mate for life and much like a married couple, sometimes the doves take flight and follow their own path for short periods of time, not tied to each other every moment of every passing day. But when the darkness sets in, whether their day’s journey has been together or apart, they both return to the safe place they know is home for the night, to each other.

The releasing of these white doves is a blessing to you both on this day. It is a reminder that while your lives, your paths and your other commitments may often lead you in opposite directions, you always have a place to come home to, to find each other and be one."

"As these doves fly they will carry for you and all of your loved ones here present, wishes for peace, love and hope for your future life together."
