Taking Over the World with the One You Love

I’ve had your 100% support from the moment I finally admitted to you that I was a secret wedding geek who had started a wedding blog because I’d loved planning our own wedding that much. For that I will be eternally grateful. I know that without you here by my side, there is no way that Rock n Roll Bride would be where it is today. Without your logical advice and technical know-how, I certainly wouldn’t have been able to create and maintain this little corner of cyber space like I have…

You helped me set up my site properly when I deleted my Blogger account by mistake.

You convinced me that Twitter was the ‘next big thing’.

You create custom widgets and sidebars and layouts and all kinds of fancy behind the scenes geekery that I can’t even begin to pretend to understand. Because of you my website looks the prettiest it ever has.

You’ve indulged me with my weird ideas and often questionable opinions.

You’ve corrected my terrible spelling and kept my grammar in check. Hell, you even occasionally read my magazine articles (even though I know the subject is totally boring for you), critique my photo shoot ideas and approve my video blogs.

You’ve attempted time and time again to explain tax and VAT to me…and I’m so sorry but I still don’t really get it.

You’ve always been by my side in this crazy blogging adventure, even when we didn’t speak for 24 hours because I was stuck at my computer trying to hit some crazy deadlines.

…And now you’ve quit your own business to work with me. Full time. Words can’t express how proud I am of you for taking that leap to leaving a job that you hated…and words also can’t express how excited I am that you are officially my bitch. (Ahem, now where’s that coffee I ordered?!)

I promise to always appreciate you and all you do for me, our business and our little family. I’ll try my hardest to not be the worst ‘boss’ you’ve ever had…and I promise to always be willing to drop everything and go to Nando’s for lunch with you.

Welcome to team Rock n Roll Bride Gareth. Let’s take over the world together shall we?!

  3. How lovely, especially that he gets to leave a job he hates. It’s nice when a business grows to the size where that is possible.

  10. *hats off* mighty proud and happy for you and Gareth taking over the world! great inspiring move!!! =)
    massive hugs all the way! xxx

  11. There is nothing about this post that I don’t love, and the best thing of all is getting to work with someone you love, doing something you love. Just hope that this post encourages all those dreamers to become doers; because amazing things can happen when you believe in your dreams.

    Massive congrats to both of you, and well done Mr Williams on escaping the 9-5; because happiness shouldn’t come down to it hitting 5pm on a Friday, every working day should be happy! *Big cheesy smile*

  12. Omg! I am a sucker for romance what a lovely post! Soooo romantic…. Do you write wedding speaches I can give to my H2B Kat? Ha xxx

  13. I love it! Rock n Roll Bride and Groom! Just when we didn’t think this little place of internet could get any better, now we have two of you – and I look forward to seeing more of you both!
    Best of luck team RRB, here’s to wonderfully wild and exciting blog things to come. 🙂

  14. Congrats to both of you guys! Speaking from experience … I’ll say you’re gonna love it. As soon as you both figure out the, uh, delicate dance between bitchhood and partnership. Have so much fun!

  15. This is so awesome!!!!!!!!!!!! Yay Gareth!! Congrats to you both on making RnRB the blazing success that it is — and how freaking wonderful and sweet is it that you two get to be full time business partners?! as the great huey louis once said, “that’s the power of love”… xoxo

  16. I like to know all about this & the updates, its really fascinating as I wouldn’t dream of working with hubby (I’m way to bossy) but there are so many of couple success so it does work! Enjoy your new lifestyle Gareth!
