Bindi Irwin, Chandler Powell Wednesday without guests amid coronavirus

Bindi Irwin and Chandler Powell got married today!

As fans will recall, the couple got engaged on July 24, 2019.

Last night Scott Morrison announced in response to the coronavirus crisis, weddings would be restricted to five people; the couple getting married, their witnesses and the celebrant.

In photos obtained by 7 News on Wednesday, Steve Irwin's daughter was wearing a large white wedding gown as she was ushered into the Zoo on the Sunshine Coast.

On March 25, Irwin revealed in an Instragram post: "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 lovely day for almost a year and had to change everything, as we didn't have guests at our wedding", she explained in the image's caption.

The post continued, "This was a very hard decision but important to keep everyone safe". However, she was able to share the day with her family due to them all living together at the zoo. Bindi and Chandler began dating in 2015 after the two met on a private tour of the Australia Zoo in Queensland.

Chandler is a wakeboarder from Seffner, Florida. Here's to a lifetime of friendship, goal and unconditional love.

In November, wildlife expert Bindi spoke to HELLO! ahead of her wedding and admitted she is finding "some special way" to include him in the ceremony and reception.

It's understood Bindi has brought her special day forward in a bid to beat the new restrictions for weddings, which come into place at midnight tonight. "You know, if you are missing someone, I think it's helpful to know that scientifically you can't actually create or extinguish life, you can only change its form", she said, adding, "so if you are grieving someone you loved very much, look to science and just remember that when you boil the kettle and steam comes out, it doesn't mean the water has gone". However, she, her mother, and brother, Robert, have helped keep Steve's memory alive.

Irwin first met her United States born husband in 2013, with the Dancing with the Stars victor holding USA citizenship herself as her mother Terri is originally from Oregon.

"We were in the gardens of Australia Zoo and it was beyond ideal". He got her email address so they could stay in touch, and the rest is history!
