COOLTH ON THE TENNIS COURT

While Captain Hill-yard remains faithful to the more orthodox tennis outfit, Mr. Derek Studley Herbert and Major Eric Loder believe in the elimination of superfluities. The result, as far as Major Loder is concerned, is a rich mahogany disguise, but Lady Seafield’s tall husband is still recognisable. This snapshot was taken at Mr “Bill” Burton’s lovely place up at Mougins, where, amongst many other attractions, he has a really fine hard court.

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.
