Newlyweds Bindi Irwin, 21, and Chandler Powell, 23, are working on a ‘very special project’ following their nuptials this week.
Australia Zoo told Daily Mail Australia on Friday that the newlyweds are busy putting together something that will ‘ensure their wedding is shared with everyone’.
While additional details are yet to be revealed, a spokesperson for Australia Zoo encouraged fans to ‘keep an eye’ on their social media channels for updates.
‘We’re thrilled!’ Australia Zoo wished newlyweds Bindi Irwin, 21, and Chandler Powell, 23, (both pictured), a ‘long and happy future together’ in a statement to Daily Mail Australia on Friday
Australia Zoo said they were ‘thrilled for Bindi and Chandler’ and ‘wish them a long and happy future together as husband and wife’.
Bindi and Chandler made the ‘difficult decision’ to host their wedding without guests amid the coronavirus pandemic.
The decision came just hours after Prime Minister Scott Morrison enforced new restrictions on weddings, with only five people allowed to attend – including the couple, the celebrant and witnesses.

Bindi shared the first photo of the couple as husband and wife to Instagram on Wednesday night, and told fans that it was ‘important to keep everyone safe’.
‘March 25th 2020. 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.
‘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.

Crisis: Strict measures have been enforced due to coronavirus (COVID-19). As of March 27, the total number of people diagnosed with the virus in Australia is 3,050 including 13 deaths
‘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.
‘Right now we’re encouraging the world to hold onto hope and love, which will carry us forward during this profound time in history.’
In the stunning photo, taken in the grounds of Australia Zoo, Bindi wore a princess-style gown with a lace bodice and semi-sheer sleeves.

Family: Despite celebrating a birthday and engagement on the same day, Bindi admitted last year that it was ‘bittersweet’ as her father Steve Irwin (right) was not there. Pictured also with mother Terri Irwin and brother Robert
Despite it being her birthday and engagement, Bindi admitted in an Instagram post at the time that it was a ‘bittersweet’ day as she was celebrating without her father.
Steve Irwin, famously known as the ‘Crocodile Hunter’, tragically died from a stingray barb to the heart in 2006. He was 44-years-old.
Speaking to the Sunshine Coast Daily, she explained: ‘I do really wish that dad was here to be able to celebrate with us as a family.
‘I think in some ways he is and his spirit lives on in everything that we do, and I always feel closest to dad here at Australia Zoo.’
