‘Hold on to hope and love’: Bindi Irwin marries Chandler Powell at Australia Zoo

News

AUSTRALIA (WJW) — Bindi Irwin announced Wednesday that she married her husband, Chandler Powell, at Australia Zoo Gardens, lighting a candle in her father’s memory.

Irwin said while her family had to change their ceremony plans due to the coronavirus outbreak, it was a “beautiful moment.” Her brother, Robert walked her down the aisle.

She wrote: “We held a small ceremony and I married my best friend. There are no words to describe the amount of love and light in my heart right now. We’ve planned this beautiful day for nearly a year and had to change everything, as we didn’t have guests at our wedding. This was a very difficult decision but important to keep everyone safe. We wish all of our friends and family could have been there with us, however it’s lovely that we will be able to share photos and videos. Right now we’re encouraging the world to hold onto hope and love, which will carry us forward during this profound time in history. Today we celebrated life and revelled in every beautiful moment we shared together in our Australia Zoo gardens. Mum helped me get ready, Robert walked 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. Thankfully, since we all live at Australia Zoo as a family, we could be there for each other. To everyone reading this – stay safe, social distance and remember LOVE WINS!”

The couple became engaged on Irwin’s 21st birthday last summer.
