Gabrielle Ray – Wedding – Nuneaton Chronicle Friday – 1st March 1912

 

TOPICS OF THE WEEK

 

A veil of mystery surrounds the omission of Miss Gabrielle Ray to attend St. Edward’s Roman Catholic Church, Windsor yesterday in order to become the bride of Mr. Erie Loder. The bridegroom was there and, poor deluded mortal, waited one solid hour, but the musical comedy actress was otherwise engaged, and those present were told they “had better leave the church.” Investigation only tends to enshroud the matter still more, for at nine o’clock, two hours before the wedding, a motor car containing three friends of the prospective bride and bridegroom, called at Bolton Gardens, and shortly afterwards the gentlemen left Miss Ray’s flat, the expected bride accompanying them. It reminds one of the opening words of the chorus of the once-popular song, “There was I waiting at the church!”
