Wedding Day Luck

Some may not know that around 250 years ago a London chimney sweep saved the life of King George III. The sweep had been the only person brave enough to stop the King’s out-of-control horse and carriage. By Royal Decree the King proclaimed all sweeps good luck bearers who should be treated with respect.

The folklore was established and to this day chimney sweeps are invited to attend weddings, where it is hoped that their good luck will rub off with a wish and a handshake.
