Bindi Irwin and Chandler Powell shared an intimate section of their wedding after they decided to get married before strict distance measures were introduced.
“We held a small ceremony and I married my best friend,” the happy bride wrote on Instagram.
“There are currently no words to describe the amount of love and light in my heart. We planned this beautiful day for almost a year and had to change everything because we had no guests at our wedding. This was a very difficult decision, but important to protect everyone.
“We wish that all of our friends and family members would have been with us, but it is nice that we can share photos and videos. At the moment we are encouraging the world to hold on to hope and love what is going on in this deep time Will advance history.
“Today we celebrated life and enjoyed every beautiful moment that we spent together in our gardens at the Australia Zoo. Mom helped me get ready, Robert led me down the aisle, Chandler became my husband and together we lit a candle in Dad’s memory. We shared tears and smiles and love. Fortunately, since we all live as a family in the Australia Zoo, we could be there for each other. For anyone reading this – stay safe, social distance and remember that LOVE WINS! “
Strict rules that are introduced on Wednesday at midnight mean that weddings are limited to a maximum of five people.
The couple’s wedding was broadcast live in 7 News Queensland at the Australia Zoo. A small handful of guests were spotted on location over drone shots.
