MELBOURNE, March 25 (Reuters) – Bindi Irwin, daughter of late “Crocodile Hunter” Steve Irwin, married her family’s Australian Zoo on Wednesday in an event that spurred online protest as she became produced only a few hours before the ban on ceremonies with more than two witnesses entered into force.
Irwin posted a wedding snapshot on social media on Wednesday, saying, “We had a little ceremony and I got married with my best friend. ”
“We planned this beautiful day for almost a year and we had to change everything because we did not have guests at our wedding. It was a very difficult but important decision to keep everyone safe, ”said Irwin.
Images of a wedding dress seen under a pile of umbrellas at the Australian Family Zoo in northeast Queensland were shown on television on Wednesday less than 24 hours after Prime Minister Scott Morrison imposed a limit of only five people at weddings – the couple, an officiant and two witnesses – from midnight Wednesday, to curb the spread of a coronavirus.
In front of his tweets, when the images of the marriage first appeared, indignant viewers complained that Irwin set a bad example in the midst of national blockades against coronaviruses.
“How many people will receive # COVID-19 from this marriage?” Asked one person on Twitter, referring to the disease transmitted by the virus.
Powell said on social media that he met Bindi at the zoo, where he now works, six years ago.
“After almost a year of planning, we have changed everything so that we can organize a small and safe private ceremony at our home, the Australian Zoo,” he said in a message Thursday morning.
Bindi Irwin became famous as a child when his eccentric eccentric father, whose television programs were popular all over the world, died in 2006, after a stingray beard pierced his heart while filming the Great Barrier Reef.
She won the reality show Dancing with the Stars in the United States in 2015, when she was 17 years old.
