Gabrielle Ray – Wedding -The Birmingham Weekly Post – Saturday 2nd March 1912

 

 

MISS GABRIELLE RAY’S WEDDING.

BRIDE FAILS TO APPEAR.

SINGULAR AFFAIR

Miss Gabrielle Ray, the musical actress was not married yesterday. The general impression shared apparently the bridegroom – was her wedding Mr Eric Loder was to take place eleven o’clock at St Edward’s Roman Catholic Church, Windsor. A message from the Windsor correspondent of the “London Evening News” states that ceremony was fixed for the mentioned and Mr Loder was there, but after waiting for an hour he left in his motor car. The bridegroom did not enter the church but remained with Canon Longinotto, was to perform the ceremony. The organist arrived, and was ready to play the wedding march that had been specially written the occasion. The choir were there in their surplices, together with the registrar. After waiting for and hour the Canon sent word that the bride not yet arrived, and therefore present “had better leave the church.” The chancel was decorated with palms, arum lilies, white lilac, ferns, double stocks, and Cuban roses. Every preparation had made for a wedding, and it was understood that the bride would motor from London.

The mystery deepened as the result of an enquiry at noon by a Press representative at Miss Ray’s flat in Bolton Gardens, Kensington. He was informed by a maid that Miss Ray was at home, but after waiting a few minutes she returned with information that “I now find that Miss Ray is not at home.” At nine o’clock this morning a car containing three male friends the prospective bride and bridegroom called at Bolton Gardens. The men left the car and went to Ray’s flat. Shortly afterwards left with the expected bride. At noon another car called for Miss Ray in accordance with instructions. The chauffeur was informed that it would not be required.

Miss Gabrielle Ray, who is a little over 26 years of age, made her first appearance on the stage at the Princess’s Theatre on Oxford Street, as the child Geraldine in famous old play, “Green Bushes.” Other parts in connection with which Mr Eric Loder’s fiancée will be remembered were Thisbe in “The Orchid,” Lady Dorothy Congress in “The Little Cherub,” and So-Hie in “See-See” at Daly’s. Miss Gabrielle Ray was also one of the many “Merry Widows” engaged Mr George Edwardes to take the place of Miss Lily Elsie.

MERELY POSTPONED.

 The Press Association says Miss Gabrielle Ray authorises the statement that she is ill in bed and the wedding is merely postponed.

Gabrielle Ray – The Palladium – The Stage – Thursday 15th September 1921

THE PALLADIUM.

 

Madeleine Collins, whose fine work in “Pagliacci” and “La Boheme” in last year’s season at Covent Garden will be recalled by opera lovers, made a first appearance in variety at the Palladium on Monday. One of the best songs from her varied repertory, the “Jesuis Titania” item from “Mignon,” was brilliantly done in her clear-ringing soprano, especially in the bravura passages, but it appeared to be beyond the artistic range of some people in the audience. Her success was striking, for all that, and the singing of “Good Night, Ladies and Gentlemen,” rounded off a perfectly artistic performance. Tom Edwards with his admirable crying baby item, Fred Barnes with his popular songs; and Talbot OFarrell, with his ballads and stories carry over their success of last week. Gabrielle Ray, assisted by clever Leslie Barker, again presents her pretty miscellaneous act which, with the introduction of a number of kiddies, is of the very essence of the best musical comedy. The dainty “Jack o’ Jingles” and the crinoline numbers are retained, and Miss Ray gets all her effects by not striving after them. The Flemings contribute their wonderful living statuary and acrobatic act, which has no equal in variety, and Maidie Scott has a prominent place for her song-cycle “Eve’s Progress.” Others are Radford and Russell, Esta Stella, the Four Kemptons and Les Ruby, Miss Stella giving her lively and prettily costumed songs at evening performances only.
