Bindi Irwin shares first wedding photo amid coronavirus pandemic

Bindi Irwin shared the first official photo from her wedding to Chandler Powell to Instagram on Wednesday. 

The wildlife warrior revealed to fans that the couple made the difficult decision to have no guests present, amid the coronavirus pandemic.  

It comes just hours after Prime Minister Scott Morrison enforced restrictions on weddings as of 11.59pm, March 25, amid the coronavirus pandemic.

Weddings may be conducted as long as it’s just the couple, the celebrant and two witnesses.

The wedding ceremony took place among a lush garden oasis, presumably at Australia Zoo. 

An archway for guests of the bride and groom was erected, while statement white florals were seen throughout.

Photographers and videographers were also on hand, no doubt ensuring they got in the perfect position to capture footage of the big day.

On Tuesday night, Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison enforced tough conditions on weddings amid the coronavirus pandemic.

Weddings can be conducted as long as it’s just the couple, celebrant and two witnesses in attendance.  

‘Large gatherings for weddings, sadly, won’t be possible under these new arrangements,’ he said.

‘Sadly, also, and I know this will be very difficult, funerals to no more than 10 persons observing the rules around the four-square-metre rule and the social distancing practices.

‘This is not an easy decision. Where we have already found, and Dr Murphy can speak to this, some of the events that have been some of the major transmitting events, it has been exactly these types of events, particularly weddings.

‘And that is why, regretfully, we have to be able to put these arrangements in place.’

Speaking to the Sunshine Coast Daily, she explained: ‘I do really wish that dad was here to be able to celebrate with us as a family. I think in some ways he is and his spirit lives on in everything that we do, and I always feel closest to dad here at Australia Zoo.’

She added: ‘People have been so kind and sharing so much love and that means so much to me.’
