"For us, Mother's Day means honouring and celebrating with my gorgeous and amazing daughter, Rebecca. Mother’s Day means love in our family, it’s always been our special thing.

We have a saying - you don’t just give love you are love.

All we both can wish for this year in our business  is positivity and support from all our local community."

Hiddlestone Electrics by Natalie Hiddlestone

“I cherish my relationship with my mum, Kay. It is a connection which is now much deeper, stronger and richer – both personally and in our family business.

Before the unexpected loss of my Dad Vern in 2014 - who I miss terribly every day - my mum was always the homemaker for our family, and I spent the majority of my time at work. So, we didn’t get to spend much time with each other.

Since his passing, my mum now works with me at Hiddlestone Electrics in our Townshend Road premises, so we get to see each other every day.

The opportunity to foster this relationship with my mum is the one gift that has come out of such a heartbreaking loss for me.

In a world of uncertainty and ever-changing conditions, our focus is the same that it has always been in our 102 years in Subiaco, steeped in the core values of my father and the company’s forefathers: to provide good, reliable service."

Zolotas Bridal by Sophie Linardopoulos

"We are a mother and daughter bridal business who chose Subiaco for the beautiful leafy green streets and heritage-listed buildings. Subiaco feels like a village to us with a strong community feeling that takes us back to Greece.

I grew up on the Greek island of Paros, and my mother Donna taught me everything there was to know about running a business as well as instilling hard working values and morals in me. I am passionate about every woman that becomes a Zolotas bride, as I feel that we are able to bring back a piece of my Greek heritage to Australian shores."

Chandelabra Weddings & Events by Kerri Sharp

"My daughter, Courtney and I create a good balance in our business relationship.

We both have creative talents in different areas which come together and result in the culmination of a beautiful wedding, both aesthetically, with the complete visual styling of the day, and also emotionally, by making the bride and her bridal party including others and grandmothers, feel confident and beautiful.

We are hoping this year to continue to draw inspiration from each other and both adding new services to our business, including bridal headpieces and hair styling services to the repertoire."
