Looks like you have good evidence. The other thing i would include is some mail addressed to you both together and separately at the same address. You don't have to include much just one from the beginning of you living together, one in between and recent. Maybe some of your bank statements, invitations etc cover that so don't need to include extra. Even if you have a joint lease it's good to show you both actively live there.
