Bindi Irwin and Chandler Powell's $10 million wedding at Australia Zoo

The loved-up couple reveal their star-studded plans for their big day.

They're already on cloud nine after making their relationship official, but now things are getting even more exciting for Bindi Irwin and Chandler Powell.
Sources tell Woman's Day the newly engaged couple are planning a money-spinning, star-studded ceremony when they tie the knot early next year – which will earn them in excess of $10 million!
In what's being billed as Bindi's very own version of a royal wedding, the event will take place at Australia Zoo, where Chandler recently popped the question.
The TV nuptials will be timed to coincide with the peak season for national audiences, with broadcast giants already bidding against each other over the certain ratings winner.
Plus, in another boost to the couple's burgeoning bank balance, the rights will also be sold internationally.

"Bindi and Chandler love the idea of sharing the pinnacle of their journey with as wide an audience as possible," shares an exclusive Irwin insider.
"They're determined to push on as a celebrity couple and figure that getting married on TV is a wonderful way to kill two birds with one stone. Not only are they shouting their love from the rooftops, but they'll be growing the family brand as well as their own – and scoring an amazing payday in the process!"

Star guest list

Bindi's mum Terri, 55, is helping with every detail as the bride-to-be, 21, and Chandler, 22, pull together a star-studded guest list.
"Thanks to their star power in the States they'll be able to attract a lot of famous names," reveals our insider.
"The family have grown extremely close to Jimmy Fallon, Millie Bobby Brown and a host of other big Hollywood names, who will all be front and centre when they tie the knot. Of course, there'll be a ton of local celebs too, with Russell Crowe, the Hemsworths and other big Aussie names cheering them on."

Besides their hefty screen deal, the couple will also sell tickets to the star-studded bash. They already offer fans paid-for access to various family birthday celebrations at the zoo each year.
Bindi and Chandler gave the first hint to their grand plans last week, when the wakeboarder posted an adorable shot of them cuddling up to a koala on the day he proposed.
"One of the most beautiful photos from our engagement last week," he wrote, adding, "It only makes sense that we would include our @australiazoo family in our special day."
Bindi then replied, "Koalas on our wedding day @AustraliaZoo is a MUST."

The wedding will have a heavy wildlife theme, with Bindi and Chandler surrounded by animals as they say, "I do."
"Bindi has spent her whole life in front of the cameras so this doesn't faze her one bit," adds our source. "Everyone adores them, and this will be a wonderful way to celebrate their love with each other – and their fans, too."

Terri turns back time

When Bindi shared a photo of her mum Terri on social media last week, fans couldn't stop gushing over her flawless complexion.
"She doesn't age! She looks sooooo good," one fan commented. Another enthused, "Your mom never ages – I swear she never ages!"
And sources tell Woman's Day the family matriarch is taking better care of herself than ever.
"She's meticulous about her skincare and keeps herself incredibly active and healthy," one friend tells.
