It's usually more tax efficient to live off capital, rather than chase income.

High income producing equities are generally poor quality companies, both the dividends & share prices of said companies have collapsed this year V Fundsmith that hit it's all time high in last week.

UK has a max rate of CGT of 20% v 45% for income.
Good point. Some combination of income and capital gains is more interesting. Being married, we will both have capital gains allowances and personal allowances for income.
