It has been almost two weeks since Bindi revealed she and Chandler had married at their home at Australia Zoo, with the coronavirus pandemic having a big impact on their original plans. The newlywed said they had to "change everything" about their nuptials, with only Bindi's mum, brother Robert, and her late father Steve's best friend, Wes Mannion, in attendance.

Nonetheless, the wedding looked beautiful, with Bindi wearing a long-sleeved lace dress that was inspired by the gown her mother wore on her own wedding day, and featuring sunflower motifs that reminded her of her dad. "I wanted something very similar because I've admired my mum's dress since I was tiny," Bindi told People. "When I was about 12 years old, I put on mum's wedding dress and it was really, really special… It's over 50 years old because it's been in the family for that long."
