In the twitter post shared by the publication, Robert told the hosts of the show that Bindi's wedding day was an emotional and important day for him. 

He also revealed that walking her down the aisle was an honor that deeply touched him. Robert Irwin also appreciated their Zoo workers for the work they did and noted that their late dad Steve was with them in spirit at the ceremony. He said,

"We were so emotional and so happy. It was a day that you definitely wish that Dad was there for it, but I think he was definitely there with us in spirit."

Steve and Bindi's mother Terri also claimed that she and her children felt the presence of her late husband watching over them from heaven.

She also stated that they were already thinking about having children, but added that it will still take a while before people start seeing babies.

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.

They got married at the Australia Zoo and decided to have a small intimate wedding ceremony. They also did not have any guests due to the new coronavirus pandemic. 

After their wedding, Bindi revealed that she and Chandler were planning on feeding crocodiles at the Australia Zoo after their big day.

March 25th 2020 ❤️ We held a small ceremony and I married my best friend. There are no words to describe the amount of love and light in my heart right now. We’ve planned this beautiful day for nearly a year and had to change everything, as we didn’t have guests at our wedding. This was a very difficult decision but important to keep everyone safe. We wish all of our friends and family could have been there with us, however it’s lovely that we will be able to share photos and videos. Right now we’re encouraging the world to hold onto hope and love, which will carry us forward during this profound time in history. Today we celebrated life and revelled in every beautiful moment we shared together in our Australia Zoo gardens. Mum helped me get ready, Robert walked me down the aisle, Chandler became my husband and together we lit a candle in Dad’s memory. We shared tears and smiles and love. Thankfully, since we all live at Australia Zoo as a family, we could be there for each other. To everyone reading this - stay safe, social distance and remember LOVE WINS!

The newly wedded are presently having their honeymoon at the Australia Zoo, and helping out with whatever they can. Due to the novel coronavirus, they don't have much of an option, but according to Robert, they seem to be having lots of fun.
