Weddings - A sweep is Lucky!

The tradition of a chimney sweep bringing the bride and groom luck on their wedding day is one that goes back many years and continues today.

Legend has it that during the reign of King George II a chimney sweep bravely stepped outu and stopped the King's horses and coach as it bolted.  The King was so grateful to the sweep for saving his life that he made a Royal Decree that all sweeps were lucky!

Seeing a chimney sweep on your wedding day is still considered a lucky omen and many couples choose to invite a sweep to attend their wedding to bring a touch of luck.

John would be happy to offer his services as a lucky sweep at your wedding.
