Bindi Irwin Says Paparazzi Almost Ruined Her Wedding with Chandler Powell
Bindi Irwin has opened up about how members of paparazzi could have ruined her big day with her husband, Chandler Powell.
When Bindi Irwin originally planned her wedding day, she intended to do it in front of 200 guests that plan, however, changed when COVID-19 was declared a pandemic.
Not only did the conservationist have to limit her guest list to three, but the day almost got ruined by the paparazzi. The 21-year-old made the revelation during the big day special that aired on Animal Planet with the title, "Crikey! It's the Irwins: Bindi's Wedding."
It would be recalled that Chandler and Bindi got married on March 25 in a sweet ceremony that saw them promising that they would help, encourage, and stand by each other forever.

We’re finally married! ❤️ Today, March 25, 2020, marks the most amazing day of my life. I married my best friend. After almost a year of planning, we changed everything so that we could enjoy a safe and small private ceremony at our home, Australia Zoo. As we embark on this new life chapter I hope that we can share some love in the world, especially during this challenging time.
While members of her and her husband, Chandler Powell's extended families understood her plight, the paparazzi didn't as they showed up in their droves at the Australia Zoo, where the ceremony was held.
Besides the paparazzi, a helicopter was seen circling over the zoo, which spooked the animals because of how close it was flying.
Despite those occurrences, Bindi and her man chose to focus on the lifelong vows they were about to make to each other as that “wasn’t going to stop us”.
They also ensured that the ceremony, which was attended by Irwin's mom, Terri; her younger brother, Robert; and her late father, Steve Irwin's best friend, Wes Mannion, honored their late father in some ways.
As it turned out, her late husband, who was known as the "Crocodile Hunter," rocked matching khaki outfits to a wedding that he attended with Robert just before he passed on in September 2006.
Remembering @RobertIrwin’s first wedding. I love that Steve and Robert both wore khaki. I know Steve would have worn khaki to Bindi & Chandler’s wedding, too. I wish he could have been there to see the most special day in his daughter’s life. We miss him so much. pic.twitter.com/ulCNYzZzIL— Terri Irwin (@TerriIrwin) March 28, 2020
Another way that the Irwins paid homage to the late animal lover was by hanging a picture of him "with his dog Sui blown up on an easel." The venue of the wedding also held a special place in their hearts as Terri revealed that:
"I think it's an interesting parallel that Steve and I first met at Australia Zoo, and Bindi and Chandler first met at Australia Zoo."
