Handwritten letters are unnecessary. They can be faked.

Yes you need a letter of permission from the landlord. Photos of the flat are unnecessary.

You should have the original tenancy agreement not a scan.

You should include a sample itinerary for when you'd like to travel.

Don't forget you need to pay the NHS Surcharge.

Do you have any other evidence of planning a wedding? Receipts for rings, dress or any other normal wedding related items?

Thanks nyclon for the kind feedback. We do not have any other evidence of planning for the wedding except the ones listed above. Could that be a problem? My wedding dress is will be my traditional attire made by my cousin and so there is no receipt for that! We have decided on a small ceremony with only immediate family (parents, siblings and their partners only) so we haven't sent out any invitation cards either.

As for the sample itinerary for travel date, I have already mentioned the intended date of travel on the online application form. Do I need to include it separately again? And how and where should I include the itinerary? Does it go in my cover letter?

Thanks Joppa for pointing out that I don't need to pay the IHS. I had almost paid for it!
