Cape Town - Singer Katy Perry (34) and actor Orlando Bloom (42) are slowly starting to plan their wedding, according to a source close the pair.

The newly engaged couple haven't set a date for their upcoming nuptials yet but are in the process of deciding what type of ceremony they'd like, ELLE reports.

"They want to make sure they decide on something that will be perfect for them as a couple," the source said.

"Their past weddings were, of course, very different. They're trying to find a middle ground now."

Orlando was previously married to Australian model Miranda Kerr (35), whom he wed in an intimate ceremony in July 2010, while Katy married British comedian Russell Brand (43) in an extravagant wedding in India in October 2010, People reports.

"Orlando doesn't want anything big and flashy," the source added.

The couple will hire a wedding planner but the planner won’t be in charge of everything as the Swish Swish hitmaker has her own exciting ideas, according to E! Online.

The couple, who got engaged on Valentine’s Day, have also moved in together, with the Pirates of the Caribbean star reportedly in the process of selling his Beverly Hills bachelor pad.

"They moved in together right after they got engaged," the source revealed.

"She'd been doing work to her new house for several months and it was finished right at the time they got engaged. It worked out perfectly and they’re loving this time in their lives."

Orlando and Miranda’s 8-year-old son, Flynn, will also play an important role in the wedding, according to the source.
