In Australia, there has been a driveway rush in the past 24 hours after authorities announced
social isolation rules prohibiting more than five people at a wedding.
This number includes marriage
couple and their celebrant – so only two guests are allowed.
Facing the prospect of a wedding
postponed for an indefinite period, or perhaps a ceremony broadcast live (see here and here), some chose to marry immediately, to beat Wednesday
Bindi Irwin, TV wildlife curator, announcing her marriage to Chandler
Powell on social networks. The little ceremony took place in Australia
Wednesday at the Queensland Zoo with only the immediate family.
“We have planned this beautiful day
for almost a year and had to change everything because we had no guests at our
marriage, “she wrote.
“It was a very difficult task
decision but important to ensure everyone’s safety. “
As you can imagine, math
jokes were flying. In Australia now, four marriages + one funeral = 30 people max.
