The following is not for the faint-hearted.

Last December, Brazillian bride Rosemere do Nascimento Silva, 32 was killed in a helicopter crash while on her way to surprise her fiance, Udirley Damasceno, at the altar.

According to Daily Mail, the helicopter crashed just a few miles from the ceremony.

She was not the only victim, unfortunately, as the crash claimed the lives of her brother Silvano, the pilot Peterson Pinheiro and photographer Nayla Cristina Neves, who was six months pregnant.

The video below, recorded by the photographer, depicts what happened inside the cockpit, moments before the helicopter went down. Watch at your own discretion.

The video was released as part of the investigation into the crash, and it has been shared online by the news channel G1 Oficial.

In the video, the bride and her brother can still be seen smiling happily and linking arms before the helicopter encountered a bout of turbulence.

However, the turbulence does not seem to stop and the pilot eventually lost control of the helicopter before it came crashing down, with the camera still recording.

Carlos Eduardo Battista, one of the wedding planners, had told Brazilian outlet Globo that it was the bride's wish to arrive to her wedding by helicopter without anyone knowing.

Even her fiance was left in the dark. He went into complete shock after he realised that the crash that happened near their wedding venue involved his own wife-to-be. And it was their pastor for the ceremony who had to break the devastating news to the groom.

Police in Sao Paulo together with specialists in aeronautics have been investigating to try to find out why the helicopter crashed, Daily mail reported.

They have looked into reports that it might have hit a tree during bad visibility with rain, fog and cloud cover.
