Natural Beautiful Informal

Discreetly documenting your wedding day - the events of the day, moments you miss, the moments that make your day magical and those spontaneous gems that collectively make your wedding day.

My Style


Hello & welcome to Alicia Dunlop Photography. I’m Alicia, a Gloucestershire documentary wedding photographer. I look to provide my brides & grooms with a wonderful selection of natural, beautiful, informal, timeless wedding photographs.

If you are wondering what documentary wedding photography is, well simply put it is the art of telling your wedding day story through photos. This style is sometimes referred to as reportage wedding photography or wedding photojournalism.

Because I appreciate that all weddings are different,  I work with you to understand what is important to you. Hence I will listen to you to understand the special little things that mean so much to you. As a result, I will capture them when the moment arises.

On your special day, I  work sensitively, & in an unobtrusive manner. As a documentary wedding photographer, I ensure that those special moments on your wedding day are captured for you to cherish for years to come. I won’t direct you or your guests. I’ll photograph your special day as it unfolds, photographing all the wonderful emotions & events that such a wonderful day holds. Thus providing you with a true reflection of your day to treasure. You can see a selection of images in my portfolio or in my blog.

I understand some couples like a few group photos of family & friends – which is no problem. I try to keep these light-hearted & as engaging as possible. The end result is a selection of beautiful, candid, relaxed portraits of you and your guests.

If this sounds good to you I’m more than happy to meet up, chat over the phone or on Skype to answer any queries you may have.

About Alicia


I’m a wedding photographer based in Gloucestershire. I guess that makes me a Gloucestershire wedding photographer, but I do work nationwide.

I think there is something so special about photographing spontaneous, candid moments that capture events & reactions that are happening at any given moment. They tell a real life story in pictures. It is this style of photography I love. I photograph people being themselves & enjoying your special day. These photographs are not pre-arranged, not choreographed nor pre-planned. Simply put, my photography captures people being people. 

I love meeting & photographing people. Whilst I work in an unobtrusive way, I always find time for a laugh & a joke with the bridal party & their guests. Working this way enables me to allow you & your guests to relax & enjoy your day. At the same time, I can discreetly document your wedding day, & capture some great photos for you to cherish.

Documentary wedding photography gives me the opportunity of doing something I love. Capturing people in a beautifully natural way. After all, people are special. I can’t put into words just how much I enjoy capturing those little things that make them who they are. The way they laugh; the way they interact with others; people being people.

2016 sees me entering my eighth year of photographing weddings. I started out working with another professional photographer, learning the craft before developing my own style and setting up my own business. It’s hard work, but incredibly rewarding. Quite simply put… I love it! Here are some kind words from my clients.

Reviews for Alicia Dunlop Photography

Hi Alicia, We are only half way through the images but we absolutely love them!! We can't wait to show our family. Thank you so much!!!

Stacey & Wayne


Hi Alicia, Thanks for everything you did, had loads of very nice comments on the way you ran the group photo's and discretely took pictures during the day. The photos are great & really captured the day! Thanks once again for making our day so special.

Elaine & Pete


I'm struggling to find the right words...thank you so much...the photos are beautiful. I had a 'quick' look at a few this morning when I noticed your email, was then late for work (!), and have been looking forward to looking at the rest all day! We have spent ages this evening looking at (& re looking at) the photos. You've done a wonderful job of capturing the essence of our special day, better than we'd ever hoped. We can't thank you enough!

Amy & Alec

We benefited from a consummate professional ­ - quiet, efficient, non-invasive and with a fine eye for when to push the button. If Alicia Dunlop can render my family so well, so affectionately and so without hassle she can cope with anything. I cannot recommend her highly enough. She is an artist.

Vicki Weissman

Alicia, Quite simply, I've never seen anyone as happy with their wedding pictures as we are!! Thank you soooo much!!

Bims & Phil

You quite simply put the icing on our wedding cake! You helped to make the start of my special day absolutely perfect. Considering I could only tell you what I didn't want, you read the situation really well and took some amazing shots.


You just seemed to be able to pick that perfect moment, and by putting everyone at their ease, able to ensure that almost every picture has that special something to it! For anyone reading this, Alicia's black and white pictures are simply divine as they have a wonderful quality of light to them. Whether it is informal portrait shots or formal shots, group or individual, you will be really happy and won’t find a better photographer to capture that special moment!

Maria & Dominic

THANK YOU - your photos were absolutely fabulous - we were very blessed that you were our wedding photographer.

Susannah & Andrew
