When did Bindi Irwin get married?
After getting engaged in July of 2019, Chandler and Bindi planned on having a wedding in Australia in the spring of 2020. When the coronavirus pandemic put their plans for a bigger wedding on hold, the two went ahead and got married anyway. They swapped vows on March 25, 2020 with just a few guests in attendance, including Bindi's mom, Terri Irwin, brother Robert Irwin, and her father's friend, Wes Mannion.
"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 [it was] important to keep everyone safe..." Bindi wrote on Instagram. "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...."
Less than five months after their wedding, the pair announced their exciting baby news. Congratulations are in order for Bindi Irwin and Chandler Powell!
