Sooty Steve

SweepAs well as being a professional sweep. I’m also available for an appearance at your wedding.

Tradition has it that 200 years ago a chimney sweep saved the life of King George II by stopping a runaway horse and carriage. The King issued a Royal Decree that chimney sweeps are the bringers of good luck and should be treated with the greatest of respect. So started the tradition and because sweeps are lucky couples would arrange to meet the sweep at their wedding.

Today seeing a chimney sweep at a wedding day is still considered a lucky omen and many couples choose to have them attend their wedding to offer a handshake for the groom and a lucky kiss for the bride.

Sooty Steve will attend your happy day dressed in traditional sweeps dress, kiss the bride on the cheek, shake the hand of the groom and present the couple with a lucky horseshoe to keep and treasure before having photos taken with the newly married couple and their guests.
