Unfortunately, the wedding party had no way to get to the reception, so police used two squad cars to get the group to the venue.

"It wasn't that far out of our way. It just helped to make a bad thing get a little better," said Morris.

The fire did destroy the couple's marriage certificate.

"The groom mentioned that, but ... that's only paper and they can get a new one," said Morris.

When firefighters arrived on scene, the limo was already fully engulfed.

"Everything is burnt, everything is toast," said Capt. Darren Jones with Halifax Regional Fire and Emergency.

"It had such intense heat, the whole thing was involved, there's nothing really left to investigate."

Jones said because the damage is so severe, it will be very hard to determine how the fire started.

No one was injured.
