Scaffolder Jason Cooper erected scaffolding outside the branch of TUI in Kent over his claim the holiday firm ‘ruined his dream Greek wedding’.

He claims that when he arrived on the Mediterranean isle days before his wedding, he discovered the location was only able to hold 45 guests.

As a result he said he had to find a new venue on the island and shell out thousands of pounds to hold his wedding there.

Jason decided to erect scaffolding outside the Broadstairs branch in Kent today and said he will continue his protest until the firm reimburses him the money he paid for the new venue.  

He said: ‘I’m absolutely fuming. I’ll keep coming back and putting the scaffolding back until I get my money.

‘What happened was disgraceful. The reps said they had nothing to do with weddings. We spent a week trying to find a new venue at our own expense.

‘We booked everything with TUI to save headaches at the other end. They failed and I’ve been forced to take action. I won’t stop. I’ll keep coming back. The sign will keep going up. I’m extremely angry.

‘They ruined out dream wedding.’

The firm called the police after Jason started his protest but officers decided to take no action against him. 

He claimed the travel agents have taken three months to get back to him but the final straw came yesterday when he said his complaints were dismissed again.

He said drivers had been beeping their horns when going passed the protest this morning.

He added: ‘I want people to know what we went through. It caused a lot of stress. We’ve lost money on the back of this.

‘It was supposed to be the best time of our life.’

Jason said eventually a venue was found. He added: ‘We got in at the end but there was no help from TUI.’

TUI said in a statement: ‘We would like to sincerely apologise to Mr and Mrs Cooper and their party for the mistakes made with their wedding booking.

‘We understand this would have been a stressful experience and extremely disappointing for the customers during what should have been a very special time.

‘We are carrying out a full internal review into what happened, both during the booking process and also since the customers have returned home.

‘We are in contact with Mr and Mrs Cooper to apologise and we have offered a full refund of their holiday and extra costs.’
