Rarotonga-based company Tik-e Tours clarified that they had nothing to do with a wedding in October last year organised by the wedding planning business accused of fraud.

 

 

The company, which is the only one in the Cook Islands providing tuktuk (auto rickshaw) services, confirmed they were not booked for that wedding.

Tik-e Tours owner Tania Farman said the story headlined “Five new wedding complaints” on Thursday, February 21 edition mentioned “white tuktuk” which is provided by them.

Farman said the comment about the groom’s transport (white tuktuk) being cancelled on the wedding day was incorrect because they did not have any booking for that wedding. The accused wedding planners never booked one, she said.

“We are sorry about what happened to the couple, but we just want to clarify that we never had a booking for this wedding at all. I don’t even know who the wedding organisers are and we had no booking made, there was no deposit and we had nothing to do with this (wedding) at all,” Farman said.

“It’s kind of like kick in the teeth to say we didn’t show up because we have never missed a wedding, and never cancelled a wedding.”
