A day before her 16-year-old brother walked her down the aisle, Bindi shared a tribute to her late dad, who passed away in 2006, after he was attacked by a stingray. Bindi, 21, wrote alongside an old photo of her and her dad,

"Thank you for being my guiding light. You're always with me."

Bindi and Chandler tied the knot on the 25th of March 2020. The couple had to change all their wedding plans to keep everyone safe and healthy due to the novel coronavirus pandemic.
