Bindi Irwin looks set to MARRY long-time beau Chandler Powell

Bindi Irwin, 21, and fiancé Chandler Powell, 23, look to be tying the knot any moment now.

Aerial footage obtained by Seven News on Wednesday, saw event planners setting up a stunning outdoor ceremony, complete with a lush green archway and statement white florals. 

It comes just hours after Prime Minister Scott Morrison enforced restrictions on weddings as of midnight, March 25, amid the coronavirus pandemic.

Weddings may be conducted as long as it’s just the couple, the celebrant and two witnesses.

The wedding ceremony appears to be taking place among a lush garden oasis. 

An archway for guests at the bride and groom was erected, while statement white florals were erected throughout.

Photographers and videographers were also on hand, no doubt ensuring they get in perfect position to capture footage of the big day.  

On Tuesday night, Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison enforced tough conditions on weddings amid the coronavirus pandemic.

Weddings can be conducted as long as it’s just the couple, celebrant and two witnesses in attendance.  

‘Large gatherings for weddings, sadly, won’t be possible under these new arrangements,’ he said.

‘Sadly, also, and I know this will be very difficult, funerals to no more than 10 persons observing the rules around the four-square-metre rule and the social distancing practices.

‘This is not an easy decision. Where we have already found, and Dr Murphy can speak to this, some of the events that have been some of the major transmitting events, it has been exactly these types of events, particularly weddings.

‘And that is why, regretfully, we have to be able to put these arrangements in place. 

Coronavirus (COVID-19) is a respiratory illness accompanied by fever, coughing, sore throat, shortness of breath and fatigue. It can produce pneumonia.

The spread of the disease, which began in Wuhan, China, has seen over 420,000 cases worldwide and more than 18,900 fatalities.

As of the evening of March 25, the total number of people diagnosed with the virus in Australia is 2,425 including eight deaths.

Meanwhile, in September last year, Bindi revealed via Instagram that she and Chandler will marry sometime in 2020 at Australia Zoo. 

Alongside a loved-up photo of the pair, she wrote in the post’s caption: ‘Wedding planning is in full swing for us and it has been an amazing whirlwind.

‘We’re looking forward to celebrating our wedding day next year at Australia Zoo. Of course, the day will be filled with family, friends and lots of gorgeous animals [koala cuddles are a must!]’

Bindi announced their engagement on her 21st birthday back in July, after Chandler Powell popped the question following six years of dating.
