We know there is no one size fits all when it comes to wedding planning. At Rad Occasions, we make it our mission to help couples create signature celebrations that feel like an authentic reflection of themselves. From the first meeting to the exchange of vows, and beyond, our team is committed to helping bring your special story to life in an event that will be fondly remembered by you two, your family and your friends.
Founder, Creative Director, and Lead Planner
Hello, my name is Radhika (Rad for short). I began working in the wedding industry almost a decade ago. After working just a handful of weddings, I knew this was the business for me. In 2015, I founded my own company and it’s been an amazing journey ever since. In just five short years, my passion for making memorable wedding events has evolved into a full-service company that I now run with my team of five, including my husband, Rob. As a certified planner and a lifelong romantic, I pride myself on going the extra mile for the couples I work with – whether it’s folding 500+ paper cranes before a ceremony or running Olympic sprints in heels to save bouquets from stormy weather. It’s all part of being a Rad wedding planner.
Favourite Things: wedding cake, wine (the good stuff), beautifully written vows, curling up with my husband after we’ve wrapped another great event
Event Day Assistant
Rob joined the team in 2017 and is affectionately known as ‘The Muscle’ as he can often be found lugging many of the heavier items on wedding days. He grew up on Denman Island with his parents, brother, and their family dog, Woof. He and Rad were married in 2019 in a wedding that literally took everyone by surprise.
Favourite Things: soccer, good whiskey, and dancing
Event Day Assistant
Amanda has worked in the service industry for many years and spent a season doing décor set up and take down for weddings. She thoroughly enjoyed her experience and upon returning to Victoria joined Rad Occasions in 2019. A social and out-going individual with an eye for detail, Amanda is excited to aid in making the couple’s vision a reality. When free from wedding assisting, Amanda works full time for a software company and is working towards her project management designation.
Favourite Things: Soccer, nature walks, craft beer, and reading.
