Zayn Malik and Perrie Edwards are reportedly planning to wed in June 2014.

The young couple - who announced their engagement last month - are keen to set a firm date for their upcoming nuptials because they are both so busy with their respective careers and are eyeing a summer wedding, according to heat magazine.

Zayn, 20, and his band One Direction are due to finish their current 'Take Me Home' world tour in October, but have already committed to a third album later this year, followed by another world tour in 2014.

Meanwhile, Perrie's girl group Little Mix is set to release their second album in the coming months.

Despite their hectic schedules, the lovebirds are keen to start planning their wedding and are looking at lavish venues to host up to 480 guests.

Venues on their radar include Luttrellstown Castle in Dublin - where David and Victoria Beckham tied the knot in 1999 - and Skibo Castle in Scotland where Madonna and Guy Ritchie married in 2000.

The 'Best Song Ever' singer - whose band is reportedly worth £15 million each - has set an extravagant budget of £1.2 million for the nuptials and is determined to give his blonde lover the "greatest wedding ever".

Perrie, 20, has set her sights on a stunning white wedding gown designed by Vera Wang and wants her bandmates, Jesy Nelson, Leigh-Anne Pinnock and Jade Thirlwall, to act as her bridesmaids.
