For the ceremony, the 33-year-old chose to wear a jade knee-length sleeveless dress with a red flower embroidered on it. She accessorized her look with a black floral fascinator and gray high heels matching her gray purse, People magazine reported.

Middleton and Matthews were reported to have planned to stay in the nearby Kenmare town in the south of County Kerry, Ireland. However, they zeroed in on Eccles Hotel on the outskirts of Glengarriff, according to the Independent.ie. The two reportedly socialized with friends and took selfie photographs with the village locals.

Hotel manager Aileen Hanley shared her views about Middleton and Matthews and the couple's stay at the hotel. "We were very blessed to have them down to visit us, it was absolutely fantastic," Hanley said, according to Independent.ie.

"What we did was lay on buses to come back from the wedding venue and they [the guests] started coming back from midnight and they had traditional Tayto sandwiches waiting for them when we got back, with cups of tea. They all loved it. So they had them and went off to bed. It wasn't late at all," Hanley added.

Middleton and Matthews were photographed Saturday while taking a stroll through a village outside the Eccles Hotel. Middleton was dressed in casuals with a white blouse, brown suede jacket with matching shoes and fitted black jeans, according to People magazine. The two walked down the village hand-in-hand and reportedly waved to locals.

This was the second wedding the couple attended since they exchanged their wedding vows May 20. After their month-long honeymoon, the two attended the wedding of Jöns Bartholdson and Anna Ridderstad in Stockholm on June 10.

The couple first began dating in 2012 and parted their ways for a few years after which they got back together.
