Three couples are one step closer to winning their dream wedding reception as the finalists of the Dorset Echo Win Your Wedding draw are revealed.

The Echo teamed up with award-winning Greenwood Grange and a team of wedding professionals to give readers the chance to win their wedding or civil partnership reception on September 12 or 19 this year.

After receiving plenty of votes, the Echo is delighted to announced that the three finalists chosen by our readers are Hayley Pavey and Matt Greening, Jennifer Mary Knights and Simon Glen Newton, and Rachel Carter and Tristan Grant.

The three finalists will now go before a judging panel and the winner will be announced in tomorrow’s Dorset Echo.

One lucky couple will win a wedding package that includes use of the wedding reception venue at Henchard at Greenwood Grange for up to 40 guests, as well as a honeymoon cottage worth £3150. The package will include use of the outdoor space for a marquee.

With slate roofs, exposed wooden beams and manicured grounds surrounded by ancient woodland, the collection of 17 stone-built self-catering holiday cottages provide accommodation for up to 78 guests set deep in Hardy Country near Dorchester.

Winner of South West Tourism self-catering provider of the year, Greenwood Grange is a magical wedding celebration location, providing a blank canvas for the winning couple to style the special day their way. The rural setting suggests all manner of themes from lanterns and festoon lighting to chalkboards, blankets, hay bales and wild flowers, all set in a private village with spacious gardens suitable for a marquee reception for up to 150 guests.

A spokesman for Greenwood Grange said: "Huge congratulations to the three sets of finalists. We’ll be keeping our fingers crossed for each couple and looking forward to welcoming the lucky winners to Greenwood Grange for their special day later this year."

Children will be looked after on the special day, with an activity space including play yurt, trampoline and swings, as well as DBS registered child minders.
