Lara Murdoch, a beautiful bride, decided to shave her head on her wedding day.
The bride decided to shave her hair off to raise money for Leukaemia and Blood Cancer New Zealand, to support her younger cousin Becky.
"As scary as the idea was, I just felt like I wanted to do something for her, and my wedding day was the last day of awareness week," she said in an email to The Southland Times.
When her husband asked why she did not wait until after their honeymoon, she told him cancer patients affected by hair loss from treatment did not have a choice when to lose it.
"Taking the bold, bald and beautiful approach at the end of the best day of my life was the best way I could imagine to support my cousin."
