Sightings of the Canadian prime minister, sans shirt, are causing something of a stir across the world.

Justin Trudeau was most recently photographed shirtless while taking a break from surfing and simultaneously photobombing a couple getting married on a British Columbia beach.

A Vancouver Island wedding photographer, Marnie Recker, shared the photo of Trudeau on Saturday with his surf board standing several metres away from the bride, generating plenty fanfare online.

It wasn't clear exactly when the photo was taken, but Trudeau has been in British Columbia for the past week.

Recker wrote: "Justin was quickly leaving the beach at the same time the bride appeared and started coming down the stairs. It was her moment and he respectfully stood aside and witnessed her walk down the aisle to her husband-to-be."

The 44-year-old Trudeau took office in November and carries one of the most famous names in Canadian political history. His late father was prime minister for the better part of 16 years, between 1968 and 1984.

A previous sighting of Canada's shirtless prime minister gained international attention.

A Canadian family encountered Trudeau while hiking in Quebec's Gatineau Park last month and took a selfie with the prime minister, who was, again, not wearing a shirt.

Jim Godby said his family overheard Trudeau saying: "This is the moment of truth. Do we stop here or continue?", before the Trudeau family emerged from a cave.

Reporting on the same Quebec encounter, American online news provider Mic called shirtless Trudeau "one of Canada's most prized national treasures".

The satirical news website the Syrup Trap poked fun at the online obsession over the prime minister's physique with a story headlined: "Family on camping trip doesn't know how to tell shirtless Justin Trudeau to leave them alone."
