Wedding Photographer Latest News and Happy New Year

Sussex Wedding Photographer The Eastbourne Wedding Show 5th and 6th January

As a wedding photographer, Christmas may have just passed but here at Peter Prior Photography we are already building up a vast head of steam planning for the coming year. Things are looking good as we already have 50% of our available wedding dates taken as well as a few booked in for 2014! 

A couple of months ago we launched our brand new portrait website, as we are taking on more portrait commissions in the future. You can see the website by clicking here .As a result we have taken the decision to limit the number of weddings we take on so as to give us more time to focus on each wedding couple or portrait client to ensure the very best photography and experience we can offer. In the past i have always shot 50 or more wedding per year and this just didn’t leave enough energy to allow me to focus on portraits at all. I still love weddings but i also love the portraits and this new way should help me to be able to offer both at the the same high levels without compromise. After shooting almost 800 weddings in 16 years as a professional photographer i want to keep the enthusiasm, edge and excitement to my wedding photography and avoid wedding burn out.

My wedding website is due an over haul and i am currently working on updating and expanding the gallery so that my very latest work (some of which can be seem by searching this blog) is available to view 24/7. You can see the wedding website here and please keep checking back for the updated gallery, due in a couple of weeks time.


At the time of writing and after many requests, i am also looking into running one of my workshops on wedding photography. These have always been quite intense, full of real world ideas and hints and devoid of the hype that you often hear at seminars elsewhere. It will be an ALL NEW SEMINAR to cater for the way the market has moved in recent times. The intention is to hold the workshop at a quality venue and offer a practical option with a real bride so that delegates should be able to see how to pose, light and work with a bride confidently and quickly in a real wedding situation and create timeless and stunning results with the minimum of fuss. I am meeting prospective venues in a couple of weeks time and full details will be announced here first and via my Facebook and Twitter pages. If you want to express an interest now please feel free to email me on or call 01323 486837. Spaces will be strictly limited and available on a first come first served basis.

I have also been asked to speak for my friends at SIM2000 on an evening in February and Park Cameras in March. These will be different seminars to the all new workshop being planned but still worthwhile for those who attend. please check out their websites for details.


This coming weekend 5th/6th January sees us attend the Eastbourne Wedding Fair at the Eastbourne Winter Gardens . Doors are open 10-5 on Saturday and 10-4.30 on Sunday. I will be on hand both days to meet with couples to discuss their needs and offer inspiration for their wedding photography. Also there will be exclusive show only packages available for those who book on the weekend. In addition our usual exciting wedding photography options will still be available, so please pop long and ask for details if you are planning a wedding.

There will be in excess of 100 wedding suppliers exhibiting as well as dynamic fashion shows throughout both days.


We have made a conscious decision to limit the number of wedding fairs we attend in the future but will be returning to the Powdermills Hotel Fair the last Sunday of January so once again, please come along and see what we can create for you to ensure you have photographs beyond the norm.
