After 4 years designing luxury bridal wear, Bo & Luca have created an assortment of 10 youthful, minimalist and price-conscious gowns in its first TEMPLE collection release.

Despite growing interest by brides internationally for Bo & Luca, there was always one thing Shannon Pittman, Creative Director and Founder, was concerned with. “It broke my heart…when woman would email us being recently engaged and enquire about a gown of ours she had liked for years, only to find out they could not afford one of our pieces”.

Shannon spent a year working with her team in Mumbai, India to develop a range of gowns made with the same raw silk fabrication and hand-beaded attention to detail as Bo & Luca, but at a more affordable prices. The result are designs that take cues from the boldness of the 70’s but maintain the elegance and intricacy of an heirloom wedding gown. Like Bo & Luca’s signature line, TEMPLE remains effortless and relaxed, without boning, cinching, and ties of traditional bridalwear, these gowns are as comfortable to wear as they are beautiful.

With unstructured designs so atypical to the bridal industry, Bo & Luca beckon a new age in bridal. With styles like the Cole gown’s flowing gathered silk tiers and uber loose silhouette, even self-proclaimed “non-brides” might reconsider.

In Australia, TEMPLE is now available at Hope X Page in Sydney, Soho Bride in Victoria and Sphere Collective in Queensland.
