If you are searching to find a Dove Release for a Wedding, Funeral, Anniversary, Memorial, Grand Opening or any special event, you will find a supplier here.

simply use the menu/navigation bar to locate a supplier within your region - eg, if looking for doves for a wedding in Newport or Cardiff South Wales, choose the page Wales-Bristol.


The White Dove has many special meanings that can be translated to your event in order to give meaning, make a statement, or simply delight and uplift those that witness these beautiful birds as they take to the sky.


The Guild was founded by several Dove Release Specialists who have built excellent reputations in this industry over many years.  In order to be considered for membership, there is a strict criteria that needs to be met. (please see bottom of page for criteria) this ensures that you, the customer can have confidence when choosing any supecialist from our Guild. Unlike other directories, no dove release business can pay to be listed or added without meeting our standards.

This criteria is set in order to ensure that you get a professional, legally operating company, that cares about the welfare of its birds, and is committed​ to providing an outstanding service to you.

So, how does this work? 
Simply look in the navigation bar for the region of the UK that is nearest to where you will be holding your event, and find links on that page to your nearest specialist.
