The incident took place at Shimmers tailors in Handsworth, Birmingham and was recorded by the groom himself.
It’s unclear when the video was shot, but it began widely circulating on social media on Wednesday.
The footage has divided viewers – with many online users defending the groom for his actions. Others condemned his treatment of the saleswomen.
The clip begins with the groom shouting at the young shopkeeper in the tailors while accompanied by a female companion who appears to be his sister.
He yells: ‘[We] paid £500 for two outfits. I get a phone call two weeks ago saying they can’t do my reception outfit because they ain’t got the fabric so they f****d me up on that.
‘Now she says I got my Gurudwara one, the Sherwani [suit] but it was the wrong colour and the stitching was sh*t.’
The groom continues: ‘At the end of the day, I’ve been messaging her. And then she says: ‘No, it ain’t going to be done in twelve days’. I’ve got my f***ing wedding in two weeks. These f***ers are p***ing me off.’
