The wildlife conservationist couple tied the knot on April 4. Ther wedding happened a few days before a lockdown due to coronavirus pandemic threats. 

At first, Bindi and Powell thought about postponing their wedding. But because they were "desperate," the couple decided to do an altered ceremony. 

From 200 guests, Bindi and Powell downgraded to a much smaller crowd - her family. Even though their wedding did not go as planned, the couple appreciated the intimacy of their memorable wedding.
