This touching video of a Tyrone groom singing his bride up the aisle will have you in tears.

While a new viral wedding video of some sort seems to appear online every other week, this might just be the best one yet.

Niall Donnelly surprised his wife-to-be on their wedding day by replacing the traditional wedding march with a cover of This I Promise You by Ronan Keating, and his rendition will leave you in tears.

The idea of Niall singing at the Omagh wedding was thought of just three days before the big event by his sister Bronagh, and when they got approval from the priest who would be conducting the ceremony, they decided to go ahead with it.

"The whole thing was basically my sister Bronagh's idea. She brought the idea up at the rehearsal three days before the wedding. We laughed it off but the lads kinda kept talking about it," Niall told Independent.ie.

"We didn't have a theme as such for our wedding but we wanted to put a personal stamp on as many parts of our day as we could. We had friends do things like Jill's hair and makeup, my mum did our flowers."

Niall, who sang the track with Bronagh, said he wasn't nervous about surprising his future wife with the song as she "had an idea" he was going to do something on the day. 

"The idea of me helping out with the singing didn't seem like a big deal. I had sung at many weddings before, and in many ways it felt more relaxing standing up to sing than standing to wait nervously with my hands by my side for Jill to make the long walk up the aisle."

"I didn't fully commit to doing it until I arrived at the chapel and the boys all gave me the courage. Jill had an idea I was going to do something stupid, she knows me well, but it was a shock to the rest of my friends and family."

"I was a bag of nerves before Jill arrived, but not because I had to sing. One of the groomsmen played guitar for the track and I just stood up and did it kind of matter of fact. Jill and I didn't even talk about it for the rest of the day, we were swept away with the craic and excitement of the wedding. It never felt like it had been a big deal, then after the wedding I had a few guests requesting to see that bit again so I put the clip on YouTube."

The video, which Niall uploaded to YouTube in 2011, has since gained over ten million views.

Watch the video below and try not to shed a tear.
