The christening of a child is a special occasion that holds great importance for a great deal of people. Releasing a white dove after a Christening is a beautiful idea for those who want to celebrate the experience with a gesture that inspires and delights people in a way that symbolises their religious beliefs.
Although white doves often conjure images of a journey home for final rest, like the story of Noah they can equally represent new beginnings. A second chance and through redemption and a reclamation of innocence. These characteristics make releasing a white dove at a christening or baptism a fitting symbol.
Our Christening packages are extremely flexible and can be customised to suit a variety of tastes. Call us to discuss what options you would like to help celebrate this religious rite of passage.
“It’s all very well to dream of a dove that saves, Picasso’s or the Pope’s. The one that annually coos in Our Lady’s ear half the world’s hopes.”Anthony Hecht – American Poet
