Our 1840 team have all been trained by the designers and involved in selecting the gowns for the boutique and yes we do get to try them all on!


You will most likely be met and assisted by Tasha, our lovely Boutique Manager, who knows our dresses inside out and will be able to advise you on materials, styles and cut whilst of course serving you the all important bubbles on arrival! Maisie may also be in touch with you as our Assistant Stylist and PA to the Director. Meanwhile Rachel is behind the scenes running all our social media channels, marketing and does make the odd appearance as Bridal Stylist in the boutique too!

It is rare to find a dress which fits like a glove first time, so if you require any alterations and additional fittings, then we have a team of highly experienced bridal seamstresses at the ready and you will be invited to make appointments well in advance of your wedding. 

1840 Bridal Boutique Director Carrie Almond.



Carrie is a wedding planner, previously working in retail, HR and management. Her passion is making brides feel amazing and wanted to bring her experience to the bridal side of weddings. The team is super important to Carrie, without the right team, there won’t be happy brides and that’s why 1840 exists. Carrie is generally behind the scenes doing accounts, running the business and avoiding being in front of the camera as mush as possible!
