You Won’t Believe What Happen to this Couple’s Wedding in New Zealand

By  | 2 years ago

A viral clip from a couple’s wedding in New Zealand achieved so much attention online.

The video was recorded by the bride’s cousin who posted the video on facebook.

The almost three minute video shows men from close friends and family of the newlywed couple honoring and dancing them with the traditional haka chant.

Haka dance is a familiar scene in the Pacific Islander region – some sort of ancient Maori war dance traditionally used on the battlefield (usually danced by the kiwi rugby team before the game starts), as well as when groups come together in peace.

In short, haka dance is a “fierce display of a tribe’s pride, strength, and unity,”
The surprise performance was performed by groomsmen and guests.

In the viral clip which was uploaded on facebook, the bride is overcome with tears and emotional gratitude towards the performers.

Sooner, both the bride and the groom join in along with other wedding guests.
