While we always do our best to ensure our clients have a pleasant and happy experience with our service, the safety and well-being of our Doves is our number one priority. As such we have specific terms and conditions in order for our service to be carried out:

  • Our birds need reasonable time to fly home, therefore we can only release during daylight hours with suitable time remaining.
  • We can not release our Doves in extreme weather. This includes:
         – High temperatures (35℃ or above)
         – Thunder Storms
         – Extreme winds
  • One of the biggest threats to our birds are natural predators. Therefore we can not release if birds of prey (such as hawks, eagles and owls) are present.


  • A non-refundable $50.00 down payment is required for us to book your wedding date. (Cancellations due to uncontrollable circumstances such as extreme weather will receive a full refund)
  • Full payment is required at least 1 week before the Wedding.


  • To help with the difficult process of organising a funeral, Dove releases can be handled through your funeral director.
  • We arrive approximately 30 minutes prior to the service and liaise with the Celebrant or Funeral Conductor for the best set up requirements.
  • We are happy to try and accommodate any special wishes providing it is in our power to do so.

It is unfortunate that most of these issues are out of our control. Should any of our bookings need to be cancelled due to these unforeseen circumstance a full refund will be made available. These terms and conditions are in addition to our Site Terms of Use found here. Doves of Love and Bouquet of Doves reserve the right to remove, add or edit theses terms and conditions without notice.
