Getting Married in South Africa

I hope you can help, I am so very confused by the legal side to getting married! My fiancé and I both live in the UK, I am originally from South Africa, so we are getting married in SA in Feb 2013.  Now as we are getting married there we have been advised to get the ANC contract in SA or we will be married in ‘community of property’. We wish to be married out of community of property with accrual. Will this be recognised in the UK where we will return to live after the wedding and if something should happen and we need to refer back to the contract can that be dealt with in the UK? Basically if we marry in SA under SA law I also need to know how that will be recognised in the UK.
