This is a unique way to express that special love and joy you are feeling on your wedding day. Make your guests remember that they attended a special wedding unlike any other.Weddings
From a purely superficial level, pure white doves present a wonderful photo opportunity at any wedding. The bride, more often than not is herself dressed in a beautiful white garment or dress. The softness, gentleness, beauty, fragility and vulnerability of the dove are the very same characteristics displayed and complemented by the bride, on the day she will undoubtedly look her most enchanting.
As a symbolic event, the bride and groom have just been united in the wedding ceremony. In the eyes of god and mankind they are now one. The doves are a symbol of the Holy Spirit and its presence on earth.
The pair of doves who are said to be monogamous in that they mate for life, symbolise this in a unique manner. Both birds help build the nest, both birds share the long days and nights of incubation necessary to bring the eggs to a point where they will hatch. Both adult birds then go on to shoulder all the duties of parenthood and will defend their nest with a ferocity that is only ever displayed during parenthood. Nothing then epitomises the human duties of marriage and family commitment quite as well as do doves. Purity, monogamy, gentleness, caring and sharing.
