Less than a month since Bindi Irwin and Chandler Powell tied the knot in a charming ceremony without guests, it’s been revealed that the much-anticipated wedding will air on Animal Planet.
The one-hour special, titled Crikey! It’s the Irwins: Bindi’s Wedding, will feature behind-the-scenes footage of Bindi and Chandler’s wedding, which took place at Australia Zoo on March 25th.
“With the help of Terri and Robert Irwin, the Australia Zoo family and some very special animals, Bindi and Chandler were married at Australia Zoo on Wednesday 25 March in a fast-tracked ceremony.
“Just weeks before their wedding day, planned for 4 April, the COVID-19 pandemic forced the couple to make difficult decisions and drastic changes to the wedding of their dreams, opting for a beautiful private ceremony with only family in attendance,” the synopsis reads.

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!
“Crikey! It’s the Irwins: Bindi’s Wedding is an exclusive behind the scenes look at Bindi and Chandler’s big day, and the preparations leading up to the happiest day of their lives, despite all the challenges.
“It features special moments between the couple and their family including Robert walking Bindi down the aisle, Bindi lighting a candle to honour her father, Steve Irwin, during the ceremony, and in true Irwin fashion, special appearances by their animal family including koalas, macaws and snakes.”
While the program will air this weekend in the US, Aussie viewers will have to wait until July to watch it. Boo!
Stream or watch Crikey! It’s the Irwins: Bindi’s Wedding on Animal Planet (Foxtel) at 6.30pm, 18th July.
