White Doves for A Funeral
Lovey Dovey Uk are the preferred supplier of many independent funeral directors, and the chosen supplier for The Cooperative Funeral Care throughout Cardiff, The Valleys and Newport
Honour and celebrate the life of a loved one by releasing a beautiful White Dove.
We can now supply free of charge an edited video of the service if required.
This is said to symbolise the departing spirit, watching it fly off to find peace, serenity and as many believe – a new beginning. You can choose to liberate the Dove(s) by hand or straight from their baskets....don't worry, we are right by your side to help you release the doves and ensure a beautiful farewell for your loved one! We can liaise with your funeral director on your behalf if you wish, or are happy to arrange the service with yourself or a nominated person of your choice. You can hold the dove(s) to release, they can be released from a basket or we can release them for you. We can provide an appropriate short verse or poem for you, that we are happy to read on your behalf. We will write this especially for you to reflect the life of the person you have lost. We never copy poems from the internet, we believe your dove release should be unique, and the only way of achieving this, is to get to know a little about you and your loved one, and put it into words for you.
Having been chosen to conduct 100's of services, we have many ideas which can be discussed to meet your requirements.

A Single White Dove
Simple but a very poignant way to say farewell to a special Loved One. Following our reading or poem, you release the dove, watching it soar to the sky, looking after the spirit of your loved one on their journey onwards.
An Escort Home
2 doves released, and 2 of the most popular reasons are;
To keep them company on their final journey, symbolic of the family looking after them one more time.
Or, maybe their spouse/partner had passed before, and the 2 doves are now symbolic of them being together again.
The Holy Trinity
3 doves to be released representing the Holy Trinity, and very popular with the Christian Faith.
Sometimes this is followed by a 4th dove, to represent your Loved One being guided by God.
