MELBOURNE couple Sarah Graham and Sam Duncan were recently married at Halls Gap Recreation Reserve, surrounded by majestic mountains and native wildlife.
Sarah, formerly of Hamilton and Sam, originally from Yarrawonga, gathered family and friends for a charming bush wedding ceremony and a stylish marquee reception.
