Television personality and conservationist Bindi Irwin married boyfriend Chandler Powell on Wednesday in a private ceremony. The 21-year-old who is the daughter of the late crocodile hunter, Steve Irwin, hosted her marriage without guests due to Coronavirus lockdown at an Australian zoo. The couple walked down the aisle hours after Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison enforced restrictions on weddings with more than five people. Hence, Bindi and her 23-year-old husband decided not to have guests and got married in a small event. However, the couple were criticised on social media for conducting the wedding during Coronavius lockdown across countries. Crocodile Hunter Steve Irwin's Daughter Bindi Irwin Writes Sweet Note For Late Father as She Prepares to Walk Down The Aisle.

After the wedding, she took to Instagram about marrying her best friend. She says, 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." Bindi further writes, "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.

In the Instagram post, she also wrote, "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."
