Um, what?

Perhaps you can explain this image.  I can't .  Obviously, the wedding dress is meant to be the star here, but we all know that a half-naked boy will always trump everything.  When I see a picture like this, I ask myself what story is being told.  What is the relationship between these two?  He is much too young to be her groom. There is the obvious symbolism of the apple; just as Eve tempted Adam she tempts him-  or perhaps teases him- with forbidden fruit.  Why is he dressed so, wrapped up like a pretty little package in her wedding veil? Why does she look amused, while he looks aggrieved?  So many questions.  What's your theory?
