The Jungle Girl is now a married woman.
Bindi Irwin, daughter of the famed Steve Irwin, married Chandler Powell in a private ceremony March 25th. The former Dancing With The Stars champion announced the good news on her official Instagram page earlier today.
Due to the coronavirus pandemic, the couple decided to not have guests at the wedding. They instead exchanged vows at the Australia Zoo, where they lit a candle in her father’s memory. Her brother Robert walked her down the aisle, while her mom Terri helped her get ready.

March 25th 2020 ❤️ 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!
Congratulations to the happy couple.
