The teahouse is a wedding day favourite. We place two Doves in our elegant teahouse cage before passing them to the Bride and Groom once they have finished signing their Marriage Certificate. A touching way to finish off the ceremony, the two Doves once release fly off together on their journey home; symbolising the new journey in life that the Bride and Groom now share.
Joining of Two Families
To commemorate the joining of two families, this release involves the Bride and Groom both releasing a Dove each, followed by a basket release of four additional Doves. As our Doves come together to fly home, it symbolises how two families have now become one.
In Memory Release
Unfortunately, we can’t always have all the special loved ones at our wedding. To pay respect to a special loved one on this day, the Bride and Groom release a single Dove in their honour. This joint release pays homage to the departed spirit and offers families a way to involve them in the ceremony. The Bride and Groom then each release a Dove representing their new journey in life together.
Surprise Gift Basket
As a surprise to the Bride and Groom, two Doves are presented to them in a beautiful gift box after they have signed their Marriage Certificate. In order to incorporate this into the ceremony we suggest advising the Celebrant they can seamlessly blend this into the service without a hiccup.
