It’s thought Irwin and Powell, who got engaged on Irwin’s birthday last July, wanted to get married before the strict new coronavirus laws surrounding weddings in Australia kick-off at midnight.

Her message included, “There are no words to describe the amount of love and light in my heart right now.”
Irwin also confirmed there were no guests at the wedding due to the ongoing health crisis. However, she was able to share the day with her family, who all live together at the zoo.

Photographers and camera crew were previously seen at the site via drone footage, with the wedding being live-streamed on 7 News Queensland.
The ceremony comes as it was announced Tuesday that people would no longer be able to have more than five guests at their wedding in a bid to slow the spreading of coronavirus.
Irwin, who shared a sweet snap of her dad, the late Steve Irwin, Tuesday, told ET last year that she wanted her younger brother Robert to walk her down the aisle.
Thank you for being my guiding light. You’re always with me. pic.twitter.com/v5FaY6mBx7

She gushed at the time, “I’m always so grateful that Robert is there, and he has been such a big part of my life and he’s always stepped up and been the one to give me a hug when I need it and encourage me forward in life.”
