Apple tree pruning - new trees

In April I planted 3 new apple trees - one year stock, and there were no instructions with it to prune immediately - which I have found out from research that I should have done, before any growth. I did remaove all the flowers to encourage root growth.
My question is, can I prune it now - I know that all pruning should be in winter or early spring as a rule, but I need to start shaping it and do not want to ruin it for the rest of it's life. I want to train it along wires so need to get the shoots going in the right directions for it to not bush everywhere.
Many thanks
Annie
