According to the new rules, set in place to curb the spread of coronavirus, just five people (the couple set to marry, their celebrant and witnesses) may be present at ceremonies going forward.

In aerial pictures obtained by 7 News on Wednesday, the only daughter of the late Crocodile Hunter Steve Irwin was spotted in her gown at Australia Zoo on the Sunshine Coast. The teenager also confirmed the wedding will be taking place at the Australia Zoo, which is owned by their mom, Terri Irwin. "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", she continued.

Bindi shared the happy news on Instagram, saying she and Chandler had "had to change everything" under the current circumstances, instead opting for a private affair with "no guests" in a bid to keep everyone safe. She asked her followers to do not forget to, "stay safe, social distance and remember LOVE WINS!"

Irwin also described that her family is "fortunate" because they all live at the Australia Zoo, so they could be together to celebrate the couple's special day.

"After nearly a year of planning, we changed everything so that we could enjoy a safe and small private ceremony at our home, Australia Zoo", he wrote in part.

"As we embark on this new life chapter I hope that we can share some love in the world, especially during this challenging time".

The pair "hit it off right away", he said, adding, "We haven't looked back since".

Irwin's mother, Terri Irwin, and her younger brother, Robert, shared their joy and approval over the exciting engagement news a year ago with Terri writing on social media that it was the "best day ever".

Overnight, Bindi posted a childhood photo on Instagram in tribute to her father, late wildlife warrior Steve Irwin, who died in 2006 from a stingray barb wound. Bee, I love you more than anything in this world and I always will. "I wish you could be here for these moments, but I know that your spirit lives on in us".

On Tuesday, Bindi posted a picture of herself with her father as a young child.
