It can be tricky to plan a wedding at the best of times, but due to COVID-19 it’s become almost impossible.

Katy Perry and Orlando Bloom have certainly discovered the pitfalls of trying to plan their nuptials amid a global pandemic.

The couple were reportedly due to tie the knot this summer in Japan, but have been forced to postpone their big day for a second time due to coronavirus.

According to The Mirror, Katy and Orlando had originally planned to wed last winter.

Katy explained, ‘You can’t plan anymore in 2020 because those plans are always cancelled.

‘We just want to deliver a healthy child. Everyone has to take life one week at a time right now.’

The Fireworks singer, who is due to give birth to the couple’s first child next month, recently opened up about her wedding to Orlando on The Howard Stern Show.

‘Obviously, that will happen in the future, but for now we just want to deliver a healthy child. And that's what's coming up right now!’
