It's Mr and Mrs Smith Stunning photos of Morgan's special day

EXCLUSIVE: Couple's wedding joy seen in these wonderful shots

MORGAN DEANE has taken her trophy WAG status to the next level after marrying cricket star Graeme Smith.

And these are the exclusive pictures that show the blushing bride on her big day.

The songstress -- who sang backing vocals for Jedward at the Eurovision -- swapped vows while wearing a stunning one shoulder ivory gown.

Morgan (26) was beaming from ear to ear as she emerged from St Bernard's Catholic Church in Claremont, Cape Town after saying 'I do' to her South African husband.

The couple had observed a traditional wedding in front of a small congregation of close family and friends, with a string quartet on hand to add to the ambience.

The bride, who was wearing high heeled sandals, was helped down the steps of the church by her attentive new hubby as guests showered them with confetti.

Graeme looked dapper in a navy suit, white shirt and tie.

And as is evident in these photographs, the newlyweds looked the picture of happiness after becoming man and wife.

Later the couple and their guests decamped to the well-to-do Suikerbossie restaurant outside Hout Bay, where they enjoyed their reception overlooking the Atlantic Ocean.

Here guests were treated to a champagne reception outdoors, followed by a lavish three course meal later in the evening.

Those in attendance were moved close to tears as an emotional Graeme made a heartfelt speech about his new bride.

Guests looked on as the couple took to the floor for their romantic first dance in the centre of the room, where an emblem featuring Graeme's name at the top and Morgan's at the bottom, decorated the floor.

The couple later stood side by side to cut their four tiered wedding cake, which was adorned with purple flowers and featured a groom holding a cricket bat and a pop-star bride on top.

A selection of candies was also available for guests to tuck into.

The festivities continued late into the night, with a delighted Morgan describing it as "the most beautiful day" of her life.

It's been a whirlwind romance for the gorgeous singer, who got engaged in April, just months after going public with their relationship.

Romantic Smith flew to Ireland to pop the question after the Proteas' shock 49-run defeat to New Zealand sent them crashing out of the Cricket World Cup the previous month.

Morgan will now become Morgan Smith, after confirming that she will take the South African sportsman's name.
