Even in the Bible you get metaphors of Jesus being like a bride, inviting everyone to his wedding feast. Clearly he had the same thing on his mind.

"The wedding supper of the Lamb" is the marriage of Christ to his Church, and the reception which follows (at the time, a wedding banquet lasted for days and anyone who entered the door had to be fed).

That said, there are strains of Christian mystical theology that speak of 'union' with God in explicitly sexual metaphors. God is represented as the male (or at least dominant) partner in such encounters, while means male mystics often used homoerotic language (somewhat tame by our standards, but still...)
