tells us that it is very lucky to have a Sweep attend a wedding as he
brings GOOD LUCK, WEALTH AND HAPPINESS with him. So now brides are
demanding it. What is it?
Good luck, of course !! The Good luck which rubs off when you shake hands
with, or better still, kiss a Chimney Sweep.
There is a legend that a Sweep was on top of a chimney when he slipped and
fell--- but his coat tails caught on a drain pipe preventing him from
falling to the ground. A crowd in the street heard his cries for
help, but could not save him However a young woman heard his call,
looked out her window, pulled him in and saved his life. The crowd
cheered and thought how lucky he was. He ended up by falling in love
with the young lady and they were married, so everyone believed that it
was lucky to be a Chimney Sweep---or to be with one---or to touch one---or
to kiss one.
So now, Brides are demanding it!
What is it? Luck of course !!!
The Good Luck which rubs off when you shake hands with, or
better still, kiss a Chimney Sweep. It is a tradition at
WHAT DOES THE SWEEP DO AT A WEDDING?
Your Lucky Chimney Sweep can arrive at the wedding
or at the Reception. It has been found that it is much better if the
Sweep arrives at the Reception, and, if the timing is right, just after
the speeches when sometimes there is a little flat time when guests are
wondering what is next to happen. Then comes the fun.
Your Lucky Chimney Sweep will enter to the tune of
Chim Chim Cheree sung in fine voice. He will finish this in front of
the bridal table, and after introducing himself to the guests, the Sweep
will first present to the couple a Recipe for a Happy Marriage, which is
truly a recipe. Then a very appropriate verse for the day is recited
to the bridal couple, after which comes the Piece de Resistance---here the
Sweep makes a big effort to clean the soot from his cheek, and invites the
Bride out in front of everyone to kiss him on the cheek, thus bringing
Good Luck to the Bride and Groom on their special day.
The Sweep then greets the Groom (while providing him with
some good advice to stick by during his marriage), and presents the couple
with some coal, a slice of bread, and some salt. These are to
symbolise that there is a wish they will always have plenty of warmth in
their home and in their relationship, plenty of food on the table, and
that they will always have the true salt of friendship around them at all
Your Lucky Chimney Sweep then presents a
certificate to the Bride and Groom confirming that he has attended their
wedding bringing with him Good Luck, Wealth and Happiness. All the
bridesmaids, groomsmen, parents and grandparents are then greeted, after
which the sweep will leave the wedding to another appropriate verse.
As you can imagine the photographers and those with videos
who are present normally have a field day. The main object
is to bring a great deal of fun to this special time for the Bride and
Groom on their day.
