What kind of advice are you seeking? Whether it is a good idea? The coastal road is a chore to drive between March and end of October, parking fees high and hard to find parking.

Check autoeurope.com for rentals; if you can't drive an automatic, try to pick up a car at a large rental car place as most cars in Italy are manuals - so, maybe you would need to pick it up at Naples airport if you need an automatic.

Well most British people can drive manuals (I am British despite current locale!) so I presume the OP likely can. If you are thinking of using the car for pre-wedding errands, think carefully about the parking challenge. We have not had any problem that would put us off driving the coastal road in four different Junes, and if you like to be able to stop in the laybys to see the view when you want to, that might suit you better than the bus. But between towns, we prefer to park the car and use ferries/buses (ferries far preferable for us due to crush on buses and uncertainty of schedule both due to the buses not running on time and not stopping because already full). You might think about exactly what you will be wanting to do. Have a wonderful wedding!
