Passionate Wedding Haka Makes A Maori Bride Burst Into Tears

An emotional wedding haka that made a New Zealand bride cry is making everybody else emotional as well.


The haka was a heart-warming sign of respect from the husband’s best man and family and not an attempt to intimidate him.


The haka – with its body-slapping, shouting, and exaggerated facial expressions – is generally used in traditional Maori culture either as a war cry to intimidate the enemy or as a way to welcome special guests at celebrations as well.

The video below was filmed at the couple’s wedding reception in Auckland.


It depicts the groomsmen and guests surprise the couple with a passionate performance of the traditional dance before they joined in.


“I wasn’t planning on jumping in until one bridesmaid did,” said Ms. Armstrong. “I felt the need to show love and respect back. I was really blown away.”


Women don't typically perform the haka in Maori culture, but she said they can join in at weddings.


The nearly three-minute video ends with the couple emotionally embracing the performers.


The haka was organized by the 23-year-old groom’s best man and was led by his older brother. Her cousin’s production company filmed it.
