Bindi Irwin will honor Steve Irwin during wedding to Chandler Powell

Steve “The Crocodile Hunter” Irwin’s 21-year-old daughter Bindi is getting married this year. While it is a time to celebrate, there will certainly be a void because of his absence. However, Bindi found the perfect way to honor her beloved dad on this special day. The videos below show how Bindi Irwin continues to honor her vivacious, animal-loving dad Steve, and her wedding day will be no exception.

The Crocodile Hunter’s daughter is marrying her longtime boyfriend, Chandler Powell. Bindi’s younger brother, Robert, will walk her down the aisle. Shortly after her engagement began, Bindi posted a note on Instagram to her father.

“Dad, You would be so incredibly proud of Robert,” Bindi shared on Instagram. “He has been such an amazing support during this beautiful new life chapter. I know you’d be beaming with pride when the time comes that he walks me down the aisle. I wish you could be here for these moments, but I know that your spirit lives on in us”

Bindi Irwin Speaks At The Funeral Of Her Father, Crocodile Hunter Steve Irwin

In 2006, The Crocodile Hunter died in a tragic accident involving a stingray. It was a shock to his fans as so many of us saw him as invincible. His wife Terri was suddenly a widow and young Bindi and Robert were forced to grow up without their father.

At his funeral, a young Bindi Irwin memorialized her amazing father. It was a touching moment for those of us who watched. I remember the tears flowing freely.

Steve only had a few short years with his daughter, but his love for her is everlasting as she demonstrated in the video below.

Bindi’s Wedding To American Chandler Powell

In a recent interview, Terri discussed the couple’s wedding plans. Bindi and Robert always find ways to honor their father. Their work with animals and conservation is evidence of that.

And so it’s natural that they plan to incorporate their Crocodile Hunter dad Steve into Bindi’s wedding too.

Bindi will marry her American fiancé Chandler Powell at Steve Irwin’s beloved Australia Zoo, making this day even more special.

“We want to acknowledge Steve by all of us lighting this candle for him, but you know, I guess in some way it’s not necessary because Steve will be there anyway,” Terri stated.

“I believe the people we love always are [with us]. You know, if you are missing someone, I think it’s helpful to know that scientifically you can’t actually create or extinguish life, you can only change its form,” she continued. “So if you are grieving someone you loved very much, look to science and just remember that when you boil the kettle and steam comes out, it doesn’t mean the water has gone.”
