When Brett visited London a few years ago, she got far more than a trip to Harrods and a tour of Buckingham Palace. She found her husband. A mutual friend introduced Brett to Bob and the two hit it off immediately. The pair kept in touch and soon began visiting each other for precious long weekends in New York and London. Brett eventually decided on a more permanent trip and hopped the pond to live in London. After three years of dating, Bob proposed in Puglia, Italy, on a rooftop terrace as the sun set over the crystal waters of the Ionian Sea. Reverend Marcello Portaluri officiated at the ceremony at Bob’s family masseria (farmhouse) in Italy, where the reception followed.
The bride, daughter of John Tesei of Greenwich and Jane Margolis of New York, graduated from Greenwich High School, Vanderbilt University and the Stern School of Business at NYU. Brett works for Integro Insurance Brokers in London.
The groom, son of Alec and Joan Finch of Manchester, graduated from Manchester Grammar School and University College London. Bob is a managing director and partner at AFL Insurance Brokers in London.
The newlyweds honeymooned in Sicily before returning home to London.
