Saffa star off the singles' market

Saffa singles hoping to snag a rugby star will be saddened to learn there is now one less on the market - Proteas' Test skipper Graeme Smith tied the knot over the weekend.

Graeme married his Irish-born partner Morgan Deane following a whirlwind romance of just six months at St Bernard's church in Cape Town on Saturday. The newlyweds then held a black-tie cocktail reception at Suikerbossie restaurant in Hout Bay, according to Sport24.co.za.

According to Graeme's personal assistant, Fiona de Sousa, “Graeme and Morgan wanted a very intimate wedding attended by only close friends and family.”

Many of Morgan's family and friends had made the trip over from Ireland for the event, which followed a long-distance courtship between South Africa and Ireland. The pair first kicked off their romance when Morgan flew to India to watch Graeme play in the Cricket World Cup. Graeme then visited Ireland where he asked Morgan's father for his permission to marry his daughter, before popping the question in Cork.

The day before the wedding, Morgan took to social networking site Twitter to gush, 'From tomorrow.... Morgan Smith ?' before adding 'Today I'm getting married to the man of my dreams?' on Saturday.
