South African skipper Graeme Smith married Irish singer and model Morgan Deane at a private ceremony in Cape Town, media reported on Sunday.
The Sunday Times weekly newspaper said the couple exchanged vows at an intimate ceremony at St. Bernard Catholic Church in Claremont on Saturday and afterwards joined family and friends at a reception overlooking the Atlantic Ocean.
Both Smith, 30, and Deane, 26, took to Twitter just before the ceremony.
Deane tweeted: “Today I’m getting married to the man of my dreams,” while Smith tweeted: “Thanks for all your positive vibes!! Most exciting day of my life.”
The couple got engaged in April when Smith flew to Ireland to pop the question after the Proteas’ shock 49-run defeat to New Zealand sent them crashing out of the World Cup in March. His move angered South African fans who accused him of dodging the fallout of the Proteas’ exit when he did not return home with the team after their loss in the quarter-final .
