"Chandler and Robert worked together to capture the moment I said ‘YES’. We were in the gardens of Australia Zoo and it was beyond perfect," she wrote.

Bindi revealed shortly after that she planned on having Robert walk her down the aisle.

She said, "I think that for me, It'll be really important that Robert walks me down the aisle. [...] I think that's what dad would have wanted as well."

It looks like she stuck to that decision as revealed by her latest Instagram post announcing that the wedding had taken place.

"March 25th 2020," she captioned the announcement post with a red heart.

"We held a small ceremony and I married my best friend. There are no words to describe the amount of love and light in my heart right now," she wrote, alongside a gorgeous photograph of her in her dress sharing a kiss with her new husband.

"We’ve planned this beautiful day for nearly a year and had to change everything, as we didn’t have guests at our wedding."

"This was a very difficult decision but important to keep everyone safe. 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," Bindi wrote.

"Right now we’re encouraging the world to hold onto hope and love, which will carry us forward during this profound time in history."

"We shared tears and smiles and love. Thankfully, since we all live at Australia Zoo as a family, we could be there for each other. To everyone reading this - stay safe, social distance and remember LOVE WINS!"

Chandler also made a public statement, and it was incredibly sweet.

"I love you more than anything, @BindiIrwin," he replied.

Excuse me for a minute. No, I'm not crying. You're crying.

Fine. I'm also crying.

Fans are obviously extremely happy for the couple.

It sounds like it was a beautiful ceremony, and we're so happy for the newlyweds!

Congratulations, Bindi, Chandler, and the entire Irwin family!
