Bindi Irwin bears his last name in honor of his late father, Steve Irwin

O’Connor /

Bindi Irwin decided to keep her last name for very personal reasons. The 21-year-old Conservator and longtime lover Chandler Powell were married on March 25 and decided not to take her husband’s last name.

“I left Bindi Irwin,” he told Entertainment tonight. “I personally think for myself, after my father (Steve Irwin) died, it was really important for me to feel for him and it was so meaningful for me to have a surname.”

Chandler forbade the couple to discuss this possible name change. At the end of the day, however, the point is “Irwin is fleeting.”

Bindi replied, “Chandler is now Irwin. “It’s become a part of me. Everyone has their own ideas, but it’s great that it’s 2020, everything works!”

Let fans of Bindi and Chandler have a look at their wedding day – as well as all the last-minute changes needed due to the ongoing public health crisis and the collapse of the paparazzi. On the couple’s special day, Bindi took a picture of her father with her late dog Sui and lit a candle in Steve’s honor.

“I like that picture very much. It’s probably one of my favorite pictures for him because he’s with his cute dog Sue, ”Bindi shared.“ My middle name is Sue, I was named after the family dog ​​Sue. Sue will always have a special place in my heart and is one of my first animals to grow up. He was there from the moment I was born … Unfortunately, Suye and Dad both died, but I love that picture because it symbolizes everyone that the day was not with us, and it’s just beautiful and it’s such a perfect moment. “Just Dad, our dog’s needle. They shared a cup of tea in the morning.”

Chandler also had a great message for their big day stand. He revealed how he and Bindu were united even though he was not with her on the wedding day.

“The biggest thing I want to say is thank you from the world and especially for inspiring my love for wildlife,” Chandler added, adding that he is watching a documentary about crocodile hunting. “(It made me fall in love with all the wilderness. Somehow he brought us together because when I came to Australia after watching his documentaries I came to see him at the Australian Zoo and during my visit.”

“Benny mentioned me to an Australian zoo the day he came to visit me,” he recalled. “So the biggest thing I want to say to him is, thank you for inspiring my passion in life and connecting me and the point, because if it weren’t for him I don’t know how we would have met.”

Now, Bindi and Chandler are enjoying their “honeymoon” at the Australian Zoo.

“I like the fact that Chandler and I were actually very similar when Mom and Dad first met at the Australian Zoo,” Bindi said. “Mom and Dad got a picture together as soon as they first met. When I looked at a photo of me and Chandler, it was very similar, and then all the way to our honeymoon. He spent a crazy (situation) with the film crew. “

“Mom and Dad spent their honeymoon catching crooks with the entire film crew. So we have temporarily closed our zoo and tried to set up more bars, ”he joked.

At the moment. My favorite picture for the wedding day. It is not a fairy tale that conveys the ‘perfect’ feeling of marriage. In fact, it’s the complete opposite. This picture was taken after we changed our whole marriage. We have decided that we will not be wedding guests because of the global crisis for the health and safety of all. Our family and friends can’t celebrate with us. However, they all encouraged us to continue and get married. From their love and support we felt the victory of love. We changed the wedding date the night before the wedding, but we were firmly committed that love would win. Everything from cakes to flowers was different. Luckily, we worked with local agencies to make it work. They helped win the love. On our wedding day we finally tied the knot and the paparazzi flew us a helicopter over a wild animal. For our own protection, we had to leave the stunning place of marriage in the African savannah. Farewell to the place I had dreamed of getting married for so many years. At the moment, I remember a barn where I spent most of my life working with my family from crocodile hunters and Bindi The Girl of Wrestling med I knew we could do our best and our zoo crew helped us get everything inside. I have seen the victory of love. I was in my wedding dress, the wife who would be by my side, looking around at the tables and flowers and trying to finally make our day a reality. At one point I sat in a chair in the corner and tried my best not to worry about what the irresistible things would look like. I missed the people who were there, my dad, the Chandler family, our dearest friends, my family. Chandler sat down next to me, stopping at what he was doing. I asked her to make a list of my happy things. He reminded me that love always wins. It was then painted. Despite everything, we are married and I will be forever grateful. Of course things weren’t perfect, but that’s what life is all about. Life is messy and beautiful and meant to be felt. We have overcome great obstacles to prove that unconditional love is the most important foundation. Our wedding day was not what we planned, but it was a great starting point for our wedding. ❤️
