You will need to apply for settlement (ie. spouses visa) by using form FLR (M) Settlement, available for download from UKBA's website. It would be best for either a solicitor in the UK to prepare it in consultation with both you and your wife before submitting it.
You can find Uk immigration solicitors through the following Law Society Website search engine:-
It might be easier to apply for a fiance visa so that she can come here to get married here and then apply for a spouses visa after marriage. If you are rejected then it would be best to be rejected, or so I would think, before you are married rather than after.
Obviously, using public funds is a big no no, but if you want the best possible chance of a sucessful application without the need to appeal then there really is no substitute for instructing an immigration solicitor to do it for you, it will cost £600-1000 +Vat but you would pay more than this if you submitted it yourself, it was then rejected and you then instructed a solicitor to act for you on appeal.
