Gabrielle Ray

'Gabrielle Ray said, 'I am always dancing; I love it! When I don't dance, I sing. What else is there to do?'

Gabrielle Ray – Marriage – Dartmouth and South Hams Chronicle – Friday 8th March 1912

A Picture-Postcard Favourite.

Miss. Gabrielle Ray, married on Friday in the Royal Borough of Windsor, might be called “The Queen of the Picture – Postcard” Something like 10,000,000 postcards, representing Miss Ray in thousands of poses, have been sold during the last, few years. Curiously enough, says the star, women and young girls are the principal purchasers of these cards, and the most popular pose is like one in which the pretty actress is dressed as the boy in Millais’ “Bubbles.” In addition to her picture-postcard popularity, Miss Ray is one of the most piquant personalities on the musical comedy stage. Her voice, though thin and piping, seems to have a peculiar fascination, while her dancing has a quality all its own.

Mr. Eric Loder.

The bridegroom, Mr. Eric is said to be a wealthy young man. He comes of a well-known sporting family, his uncle, Major Eustace Loder, having won the Derby with Spearmint. His brother, Mr. Basil Loder, resigned from the Army four years ago order to marry of Mr. Seymour Hicks’s “Gay Gordon” girls.
