Earlier this year, Crikey! It’s The Irwins star Bindi Irwin got engaged to longtime love Chandler Powell and began on a journey that will soon turn her into a married woman!
But before that happens, there is still much planning to be done.
“Chandler has been a huge help with wedding planning and is always so kind,” she told One Country in a recent interview. “’That’s perfect!’ is his reply to every idea I share with him for our wedding.”
Of course, as you might expect, the entire Irwin family have already been a big help to the future bride, taking on a number of responsibilities before and during the wedding.
“Mum (Terri Irwin) has been a huge support and (brother) Robert (Irwin) is going to walk me down the aisle,” she says. “ I’m also glad that dozens of Chandler’s family members will be joining us in Australia.”
Of course, the ceremony will undoubtedly be a bit bittersweet, considering that her late father Steve Irwin will not be there physically to see his baby girl walk down the aisle. But there is no doubt that that the late Crocodile Hunter star will be there in spirit.
“I hope to include Dad in our wedding and make sure that he’s a big part of this special time,” says Bindi. “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.”
Crikey! It’s the Irwins airs Saturdays at 8PM on Animal Planet.
