An emotional video has captured the moment a paralysed groom stood up for his bride during their first dance.

Brazilian man Hugo Rohling has been paralysed for five years after a horrific motorcycle accident, but that didn't stop him being able to stand up and dance with his new wife Cinthia Zanun at their wedding.

After their initial choreographed dance, where Hugo was still sitting in his wheelchair, the moment became more emotional when his brother and father joined in and strapped their legs to his so he was able to stand up.
