Espalier pruning advice

Hi, I’ve recently planted a couple of espalier (sort of) apple trees and looking for advice on how to prune them. As can be seen from photo, I’ve installed one of the wires for framework and have started to tie in to the horizontal.
Any suggestions where to go from here? Is it right that I snip off all the branches that I don’t want to encourage the tier/ framework of the next layer? How far apart should the next tier go?

Any suggestions / advice would be much appreciated!
