The Sketch - 6th March 1912 (Wedding)

Though lost to sight – : Miss Gabrielle Ray entering St. Edward’s Roman Catholic Church,

Windsor, for her marriage to Mr. Eric Loder.

Miss Gabrielle Ray, the very popular musical-comedy actress and the best known of postcard beauties, was to have been married to Mr. Eric Loder at St. Edward’s Roman Catholic Church, Windsor, on Thursday of last week, but was indisposed. The wedding took place on the following day, very quietly. The bride, determined to escape notice, entered the church by way of Canon Longinotto’s kitchen garden and the back door, and was hidden behind an umbrella. The return to the Canon’s residence after the ceremony was made in the same way. The Register was signed as follows: “Eric Raymond Loder, 23, bachelor, of independent means, 44, Alma Road, Windsor; Gabrielle Elizabeth Clifford Cook, 28, spinster, of independent means, 48, Coleherne Court, Kensington, London, W.; father’s name, William Austin Cook, of independent means.”
