It has been three years since Bindi Irwin and Chandler Powell said “I do” in a stunning ceremony, now the wildlife protégé has shared her plans to renew her wedding vows.
The pair were wed in 2020, in the middle of lockdown induced by the coronavirus meaning no friends and family were able to join them. However, a redo would fix that!
“We weren’t able to have family and friends join us for the wedding,” she told Hello! Magazine.
“Personally, I’d love to renew our vows one day when Grace is older. It would be lovely to have our closest friends and family with us to celebrate.”
At the time of their wedding, it was only hours before the government reduced the guest restrictions to five people.
The late crocodile legends daughter revealed it wasn’t lonely as all the wildlife at Australia Zoo – where the ceremony was held – were the guests.
“Our animals are part of our family,” she told the publication.
“Even though we couldn’t have all the human guests we wanted a tour wedding, we were grateful to spend the day with the wildlife we love so dearly.
Although getting married during a pandemic was “certainly a strange experience” but it only reminded Bindi that “love always wins.”
And their special day was dedicated to love as Bindi walked down the aisle with her younger brother, Robert wearing her dream wedding dress inspired by her mother, Terri’s very own gown which was “in the family for almost 60 years.”
Followed by a candle-lit ceremony to honour Steve Irwin’s memory.
“It meant the world to pay tribute to his memory on our special day,” she said. “My incredible brother who walked me down the aisle. I’m forever thankful for his friendship and support.”
Given their beautiful daughter, Grace Warrior Irwin Powell celebrated her second birthday in March – the same day as her parents wedding anniversary – we are hoping to see her strut down the aisle as a flower girl in the near future.
“We have our gorgeous daughter which makes persevering with our wedding even sweeter,” she said.
