Many years ago had the same problem with my GF (now wife). This is what I did and whether it holds now needs research;

1. Asked and paid the UK embassy to provide a statement noting that my GF and I have lived together as partners for x years/months. This was notarized.
2. Asked my father/relative to write an invite letter stating that she will stay for x weeks and would live and be provided for by him and his son (me). Also noting address and contact details of his home in UK.
3. Had a return ticket
4. applied for a family visa.
5. Provided my recent bank statements so it shows I can provide for the period of visit.
6. provided copies of my passport.
7. provided copies of my fathers passport.
8. Provided names and addresses of other relatives that could be contacted if necessary (i used my sisters).

These were part of the ' other information' that the application suggests, but doesnt tell what to provide for supporting material. If you provide no additional material you are not providing 'your' particular story and circumstances for consideration and they will probably refuse it on face value.

hope this helps and good luck and once you have the first visa the following applications become much easier as you are creating a history.

Yep, if you are serious and provide more than the basic info asked for from my experience (different country but similar border controls) then all the bells, whistles and hoops are overcome.

Good luck to the OP.

Cheers, Steve.
