Bindi Irwin and Chandler Powell tied the knot on March 25, 2020. Since then, Bindi has posted many pictures from their magical day. On Saturday, May 30, she described her wedding day in an Instagram post. She says that although things didn’t go as planned, she’s thankful to have started the next chapter of her life with Chandler.
Changes in Bindi Irwin and Chandler Powell’s wedding plans
Due to the coronavirus, Bindi Irwin and Chandler Powell decided to hold a small ceremony with no guests. Bindi said that this wasn’t an easy decision for her, but she wanted to put everyone’s safety first. The couple’s family and friends supported their choice to go through with their wedding privately.
Because both Bindi and Chandler love animals, they wanted to have some of their favorites included in the wedding. Some of their wedding photos feature koalas, dogs, and giraffes. In her most recent Instagram post, Bindi said that a paparazzi helicopter flew over the venue and scared the animals. Unfortunately, this meant that the couple had to leave the venue where they’d been planning on getting married for years. They ended up getting married in a barn, which was much different than their dream location in the African Savannah.
The couple found a silver lining
From the cake and flowers to the guests and venue, Bindi Irwin and Chandler Powell’s wedding was quite different than anticipated. However, Bindi says that these challenges made it more obvious that love always wins. They found ways around each challenge they faced. Their wedding didn’t go perfectly, but Bindi and Chandler are so deeply in love that it didn’t matter to them.
In the caption of her Instagram post, Bindi says, “Chandler stopped what he was doing and sat next to me. I asked him to list me happy things. He proceeded to remind me that love ALWAYS wins.” She continues, “Despite everything, we got married and I’ll forever be grateful. Sure, things weren’t perfect but that’s life. Life is messy and beautiful and meant to be felt.” Many brides are devastated when their big day is different than they imagined. However, Bindi Irwin found a way to stay positive amidst the chaos.
Bindi’s favorite wedding picture
On May 30, Bindi posted her favorite picture from the big day. The picture, which was taken in the barn, captures the moment when Chandler was reminding Bindi of things that make her happy. It shows the pure joy that the couple shares. Bindi wrote in the caption, “Our wedding day wasn’t what we planned but it was an extraordinary starting point for our marriage to bloom.”

This moment. My favourite wedding day photograph. This isn’t the fairytale image capturing the ‘perfect’ wedding day feeling. In fact, it’s quite the opposite. This picture was taken after we had to change our entire wedding. We decided not to have wedding guests due to the global crisis for everyone’s health and safety. Our family and friends couldn’t be there to celebrate with us. However, they all encouraged us to continue on and get married. From their love and support, we felt love win. We changed our wedding date the night before we got married but we were determined to let love win. Everything from the cake to the flowers were different. Thankfully, we worked with local businesses to make it happen. They helped love win. On our wedding day we were finally about to get married and the paparazzi flew over us in a helicopter scaring our wildlife. We had to leave our stunning wedding venue on the African Savannah for their safety. I said goodbye to the place I had dreamed of getting married for so many years. At that moment I remembered the filming barn where I’d spent much of my life with my family working on Crocodile Hunter and Bindi The Jungle Girl. I knew we could make it work and our zoo crew helped us to move everything inside. I watched love win. I was there in my wedding dress, husband-to-be by my side, moving tables and flowers and trying to make our day finally become a reality. At one point I sat on a chair in the corner doing my best not to think about how overwhelming things seemed. I missed the people who couldn’t be there, my dad, Chandler’s family, our dear friends, my family. Chandler stopped what he was doing and sat next to me. I asked him to list me happy things. He proceeded to remind me that love ALWAYS wins. That’s when this picture was taken. Despite everything, we got married and I’ll forever be grateful. Sure, things weren’t perfect but that’s life. Life is messy and beautiful and meant to be felt. We were overcoming great obstacles to prove that unconditional love is the most important foundation. Our wedding day wasn’t what we planned but it was an extraordinary starting point for our marriage to bloom. ❤️
Chandler feels the same way about their wedding day. He commented, “And through anything life throws our way, we will always have each other. I love you,” with a heart emoji. Fans commented to share their support and best wishes for the newlyweds.
