Summary

This book interrogates the hyper-visibility and stubborn endurance of the wedding spectacle across media and culture in the current climate.

The collection acts as a feminist project but does not straight-forwardly renounce the wedding spectacle. Rather these contributions offer an interrogation of its myriad forms and practices to illuminate the paradoxes, contradictions and disappointments of heteronormative love. Written by leading and emerging feminist scholars, the essays here range across different media forms, genres and cultural practices, to explore how the visibility of weddings changes and adapts across a new cultural and social landscape.

This in-depth analysis of the wedding spectacle will appeal to academics and researchers in the fields of gender and mass media, feminist studies, and intercultural communication.
