This emotional haka at a wedding will give you goosebumps

Bride Gets Emotional as Haka Performed at Wedding

The haka is an important part of New Zealand's Māori culture, but it's not often that you see it bring a bride to tears.

The spine-tingling rendition of the traditional war cry was performed by guests at Benjamin and Aaliyah Armstrong's wedding over the weekend in New Zealand.

A heady performance made the bride tear up, before the groom took off his jacket and joined in. Not long after she followed suit.

Armstrong said he wanted to help continue the Māori tradition by including the haka at his wedding; with his best man given the job to organise it, according to the Daily Mail.

Also shedding a couple of tears as his wife joined the dance, Armstrong said he "couldn't help but feel the honour and power of having her by my side," according to the publication.

The haka is usually performed before sporting matches by New Zealand's national teams, but a variation is performed to pay respect to important figures, such as the late All Blacks rugby legend Jonah Lomu.
