Most people know d’Angleterre as the iconic grande dame hotel at Kongens Nytorv, but few people know that the hotel was founded as a result of a great love between the Danish girl Marie Coppy and the Frenchman Jean Marchal in the mid-1750s.
Marie’s father was the chef for the royal court, and therefore, she grew up at Christiansborg, which was the residence of the royal family at the time. It was there that she met Jean Marchal, who was a valet for Count Conrad Danneskiold Laurvig. And the two fell deeply in love. Marie, who had grown up in the hectic royal kitchen with the best produce money could buy, was a great gastronomic talent and Jean Marchal knew all about serving the aristocracy - and with the help of the King, they combined their passions and talents and together opened an inn, which would later become the iconic,
historic hotel at Kongens Nytorv.
In the loving spirit of Marie and Jean, d’Angleterre continues to offer one of the most unique and romantic venues for your special wedding celebration.
