Days after her 21-year-old daughter Bindi Irwin married the love of her life Chandler Powell at the Australia Zoo, mom Terri Irwin remembered the love of her life, Steve Irwin (aka The Crocodile Hunter.)

Terri took to Twitter to remember her husband at a wedding many years ago. In the photo, Steve is holding their, now 16-year-old, son Robert as he gazes at a bouquet of flowers.

“Remembering @RobertIrwin’s first wedding,” she wrote. “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.”

Bindi tied the knot with fiancé Chandler Powell on March 25 at the family’s Australia zoo. No guests were in attendance due to the quarantine rules for the coronavirus.

““March 25th 2020 ❤️ We held a small ceremony and I married my best friend,” Bindi shared in a post. “There are no words to describe the amount of love and light in my heart right now.” She went on to explain that they wanted to keep people safe, so they opted for a change in plans.

“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!.”

Terri took another walk down memory lane, posting a photo of a young Bindi in a flower girl dress.

“My beautiful Bindi has loved everything about weddings since she was a little girl,” she wrote. “It seems like I just blinked my eyes and she was celebrating her own wedding with her soulmate, Chandler. I love you so much. Treasure each day of your happily ever after.”

Steve Irwin, The Crocodile Hunter,  died in 2006 after he was stung in the chest by a stingray barb while filming in Australia’s Great Barrier Reef. Bindi made it a point to have her father remembered during her marriage ceremony.

“I hope to include Dad in our wedding and make sure that he’s a big part of this special time,” says Bindi prior to the wedding. “Of course we’re getting married at Australia Zoo which will definitely make me feel like Dad is with me. Australia Zoo is our home and the place he loved most in the world.”
