Why not put the ‘icing on your wedding day cake’ and book me, a genuine working chimney sweep to attend on the special day, with authentic Victorian costume, complete with top hat, cane rods and a big black sweep’s brush. It is still considered even now to be a lucky omen for a chimney sweep to attend weddings, so that the Bride and Groom can be wished well for the future.
Lucky chimney sweeps are following a tradition that started about two hundred years ago, when an unknown London chimney sweep saved the life of King George II. The horses that were pulling the King’s carriage became frightened and suddenly bolted. The only person brave enough to step out of the crowd and pull up the horses to save his Majesty’s life, was that unknown chimney sweep. The sweep disappeared back into the crowd again before the King could thank him, but was so pleased that he made an announcement by Royal Decree declaring that all chimney sweeps are good luck bearers and must be treated with honour and respect. The folklore was established and even to this day are considered LUCKY and that is why many are invited to attend after the ceremony or at the reception of weddings.
If this sounds appealing for your wedding or maybe for one of your friends or relatives, please give me a call to discuss your requirements and I will be happy to oblige.
