I haven’t seen a chimmney sweep for a few years at a wedding. It’s a tradition dating back over 200 years and it’s apparently good luck for the bride to see one on her wedding day. Often they hide away like this one did ready to greet the bride and groom as soon as they walk out the church. In most cases arranged by the mother of the bride as a surprise.
I happended to see him as I popped outside the church during the ceremony for a few outside shots and couldn’t resist taking a shot of him. I processed the photo to give it a gritty look.
