Bindi Irwin marries Chandler Powell at Australia Zoo, according to reports

Bindi Irwin and Chandler Powell tie the knot hours before Australia's coronavirus wedding restrictions are enforced

As of midnight on Wednesday, weddings can only go ahead with a maximum of five people - the couple, a celebrant and witnesses.

The conversationalist is rumoured to be preparing to Wednesday fiance Chandler Powell in a ceremony at Australia Zoo today, after the Federal Government announced it would be limiting weddings to just the couple, a celebrant and witnesses totalling less than five people.

Her message included, "There are no words to describe the amount of love and light in my heart right now". The teenager also confirmed the wedding will be taking place at the Australia Zoo, which is owned by their mom, Terri Irwin. However, she was able to share the day with her family due to them all living together at the zoo.

Today we celebrated life and revelled in every handsome moment we shared together in our Australia Zoo gardens. She asked her followers to keep in mind to, "stay safe, social distance and remember LOVE WINS!"

The 21-year-old got engaged to her long-time American boyfriend Chandler Powell on her birthday last July.

Irwin met her American-born husband at the zoo nearly seven years ago.

Powell also shared a post to celebrate their wedding, captioning his photo, "As we embark on this new life chapter I hope that we can share some love in the world, especially during this challenging time".

"This is a day that we will never forget", Robert said.

The pair first met in November 2013 when Powell, a Florida native and former professional wakeboarder, traveled to Australia for a competition.
