Alice Tapfield – award winning matchmaking

Alice Tapfield 3

I hear exciting news from Alice Tapfield (OW 2000) who is heading up the New York expansion of award-winning British matchmaking firm The Vida Consultancy. Alice has consulted for Vida for six years and assisted setting up the initial London network.

She says "We will officially launch in the autumn in NYC, but over the summer I'm starting to invite eligible single men and women to join us. It's usually $400 for our open membership but I'd be happy to waive this fee, pre-launch, for any Old Wellies. So if anyone is looking for love in NYC, please just email me on This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. ".

Alice spent her early years in Australia before moving back with her family to the UK and came to Wells for her sixth form. She then went to Exeter University and obtained a 1st Class degree in Politics with French. This included a year studying in Provence, where Alice became fluent in French. She subsequently developed her client relations background predominantly in London, and also in Dubai and France.

At Wells she was an acute watcher of life and people and The Wellensian records her insightful observations of her contemporaries.

Alice moved to Manhattan in summer 2016 after her marriage to Pavan Uttam, a New Yorker-via-Delhi. They were married in St John's Church Glastonbury, and held their reception at the Bishop's Palace in Wells.

We very much look forward to seeing her at a future NYC reunion.
