Bindi Irwin: wedding to Chandler Powell
For a year it was dreamed of, extensively planned and organized. But at the last second, Bindi Irwin, daughter of the late "Crocodile Hunter" Steve Irwin, and Chandler Powell had to throw everything overboard. Because of the Corona crisis, they couldn't celebrate their wedding with all their friends and family. A refusal was obviously out of the question for the two - they were nevertheless trusted.

On Instagram, Irwin spoke openly about what it was like to celebrate this special day in a small group: "It was a very difficult decision, but it was important to us that everyone was safe. We would have liked that all of us Friends and family could have been there, but it's still nice that we can share photos and videos with them. "

Small ceremony at the Australia Zoo
During the small ceremony at the Australia Zoo, Irwin’s mother Terri Irwin and her brother Robert Irwin appeared to be present in addition to the newlyweds. They live together as a family in a limited area on the zoo. "Mum helped me get ready, Robert led me to the altar, Chandler became my husband and together we lit a candle in memory of Dad," the newlywed wrote on Instagram. "We cried together and laughed and loved."

Afterwards Irwin used the moment to encourage her followers even in these difficult times and wrote: "Everyone who reads - stay safe, do social distancing and remember that love wins."

As Australian media reports, the wedding was brought forward on purpose. In Australia, further measures and a lockdown are expected to curb the spread of the coronavirus. According to "Stern", the new regulations should state that, in addition to the newlyweds, only the registrar and the two witnesses may be present at marriages.
