I would suggest putting this question on an immigration forum rather than a travel forum.

Visit the British Embassy in Gambia or

There's no other legal way and trying to do so illegally can have a far worse result if it goes wrong.
If you love your partner then you must do it legally.

My immediate thought was that the two of you should eithet get married or become a legal couple officially first. Once that's done, the migration might be a little easier. It's important to prove to the Immigration authorities that your union is strong and that you are a stable family unit with a future rather than a convenient way of getting someone out of Africa and into Britain.
