Congratulations on your new house...and garden. The one thing I would suggest is patience. Rome wasn't built in a day or one growing season. I agree with AuntyRach and others about having a good think about what you want from your garden. Personally I would get rid of the trees especially that ugly thing in the last pic. There are just too many for such a space. That along with sorting the grass and weeding between the paving will make a huge difference. If you want some colour over the summer plant up a few pots.
Then sit back and observe.
Where do I want my coffee in the morning or my glass of wine in the evening. Choose a nice spot with plenty of light for your veg. Take notes of what gets the sun in the morning/afternoon/evening/all day. This makes things so much easier when deciding what to do with a particular space. Maybe knock up a couple of raised beds for the veg over the winter.
Taking your time, planning and thinking about what you want avoids what can be expensive mistakes.
Good luck, enjoy and let us know how it goes
