Heartwarming moment Australian bride shaves her head on her wedding day for mother fighting cancer

A newly-married couple have shaved their heads instead of partaking in a first dance at their wedding in a heartwarming gesture of solidarity with the bride's mother suffering from cancer.

Jony Lee and her husband posted the footage to TikTok, which starts with a speech by Ms Lee before her new husband sits on a chair in front of her.

'My parents think we're going to be doing a traditional Filippino dance where you stick money in our clothes to get more money,' she says in the clip.

'If you do have a bit of cash on you we're going to be shaving our heads for cancer, and whatever money you lay in front of us we will be donating it tonight.'

Ms Lee then gets in the chair herself as her husband shaves off her luscious, long brunette locks.

'We love you so much and we want to show our solidarity with you,' she says to her mother..

An older woman wearing pink then joins the freshly-shaved couple on stage as they embrace.
