Chanel is always tempting us with beautiful clothing and Karl Lagerfeld's shows never fail to impress.

His latest offering has filled us with true wedding reception inspiration.

The latest pre-autumn/winter 2012-13 collection, which he unveiled in all its glory at Chanel's Grand Palais home this week, is full of Indian spice and imagination.

Looking beyond the clothes, we've fallen in love with Maharaja transformation of the runway.

Tables were laden for high tea and there was even a small CC-decorated steam train, complete with crystal decanters for guests, large floral arrangements mixed in with dried fruits, candelabras and chandeliers: it was a grand feast and celebration. Doesn't it just look like what all weddings should be?
