Bindi Irwin and Chandler Powell Married in 2020: Their Engagement, Wedding

American-Australian television personality Bindi Irwin is finally married to Wakeboarder Chandler Powell. Amid the coronavirus pandemic, Bindi Irwin’s wedding with Chandler was not a lavish one, but they seemed pretty much in love.

Besides, the newlywed had their engagement a year earlier in July almost after 6 years of dating.

Well, here, we have brought to you details on the new wife Bindi and her romantic relationship with her boyfriend-turned-husband Chandler.

Bindi Irwin Wedding With Chandler Powell Was a Private Affair

Finally, a year after the engagement, Bindi tied the knot with her longtime boyfriend, Chandler on March 25, 2020. But unlike other celebrity weddings, the duo managed to make their marriage a secret candlelit ceremony. 

Considering the rapidly growing coronavirus pandemic, only close family members attended the event.

Their wedding was arranged in the gardens of Australia Zoo in Queensland, which their grandparents own since the 1970s and is still run functionally by the Irwin family.

Following her nuptials, Bindi took to Instagram to share the photo of the occasion. In the caption, she wrote,

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 beautiful day for nearly a year and had to change everything, as we didn’t have guests at our wedding.
