Bindi Irwin has reportedly tied the knot in a ceremony at Australia Zoo this afternoon ahead of the Federal Government’s deadline on the number of wedding guests due to the coronavirus pandemic, which comes into place tonight.
The 21-year-old got engaged to her long-time American boyfriend Chandler Powell on her birthday last July.
A white gown could be seen poking out underneath a crowd of people huddled under umbrellas next to a large white SUV at the venue this afternoon.
Aerial footage of the venue captured flower arches and palm trees lining an outdoor area.
Photographers and camera crews were in place, with a musician holding a guitar waiting at the end of the aisle.
Two easels displaying photographs had also been set up.
Dozens of people were spotted at the venue, including zoo staff cradling koalas.
The pair met at Australia Zoo.
“Chandler, close to six years ago I fell in love with you and every day since has been a whirlwind of adventure and true happiness,” Bindi wrote in a social media post when the couple got engaged.
“I’m so looking forward to spending our forever together as your wife.
“Here’s to a lifetime of friendship, purpose and unconditional love — now let’s get married already!”
Chandler has previously said proposing to her “in her very favourite place in the zoo, surrounded by animals, seemed like the perfect way” to do it.
Overnight, Bindi posted a childhood photo on Instagram in tribute to her father, late wildlife warrior Steve Irwin, who died in 2006 from a stingray barb wound.
“Thank you for being my guiding light. You’re always with me,” she wrote.
Chandler was a wakeboarder from Seffner, Florida. He now works at Australia Zoo.
