Have a Wight Sweep Wedding

In Great Britain it is considered to bring good luck, wealth and happiness to the newly weds to see a chimney sweep on your wedding day

Traditionally this is a gift arranged by a friend or relative. In pursuance of this tradition Andy / Matt and Lewis are proud to offer a lucky sweep for weddings. Prices for this service start at £125. Your sweep will arrive at either the church or reception of your choice. He will be dressed in Vintage clothing with scarf and Top Hat. You will also receive a lucky charm or gift. It is good luck for the groom to shake the hand of the groom and kiss the bride. This is all where the words come from in Disneys “ Mary Poppins” chim chim cheree song.

Isle of Wight wedding


Where did the tradition arise from?

The most popular tale is that in the year 1066, King William was walking along a London street with his entourage when a carriage, out of control, headed straight for him.

A chimney sweep happened to be nearby and pushed the king out of the way, saving his life. King William was so grateful for the act that he invited the chimney sweep to his daughter’s wedding, declared chimney sweeps to be lucky and that they would be the only service profession allowed to wear top hats, which were previously only worn by royalty and the gentry.

I suspect that this tale, however, got mixed up with a later version involving King George since top hats weren’t popular until the 1700’s.

This legend occurred with King George in the 1700’s. As the king was riding his horse in a procession a growling dog appeared, startling his horse and causing the king to lose control of the horse’s halter.

A chimney sweep came to his aid, grabbed the halter, calmed the animal, and saved the king for falling. Although the sweep disappeared into the crowd, King George II decided to reward him by declaring that all chimney sweeps are lucky and awarded them the honour of wearing a top hat.
