Woman Marries Love Of Her Life One Day Before He Dies

A woman has shared heartbreaking footage of the moment she married the love of her life, just one day before he died.

Navar Herbert, 22, died on Tuesday (June 25) shortly after marrying Maia Falwasser in a love-filled ceremony in front of their closest family and friends.

The rugby player, from New Zealand, was diagnosed with a brain tumour just months ago, however his condition quickly deteriorated.

You can watch the video of the couple’s wedding day below:

The video was shared on a GoFundMe page set up by Maia to raise money so the family could fly Navar’s body back to his hometown of Otorohanga, New Zealand, where the 22-year-old asked to be laid to rest.

Maia wrote:

Today my heart is heavy and sad, I lost my best friend, Husband and the Father to our Son. I feel absolutely showered in LOVE by friends and family, this is a hard time, however i do find my strength and refuge in everybody’s support.

Navar’s Journey has just begun, shortly we will be taking him back to Kotahitanga Marae, where he has asked to be laid to rest. He has impacted so many people near and far, and he will always be in our memories and have a special place in our hearts.

The couple have an 11-month-old son Kyrie, who was there to witness the special moment his parents tied the knot on Monday (June 24), the New Zealand Herald reports.
