You need those two references, all you can do is try harder.
Immigration need to assure themselves that your relationship is genuine. Do you have any neighbours who have seen the two of you together, your landlord or agent, perhaps workmates, or people from you church or social group. You do not need to know them well, just well enough for them to be able to see the two of you as a couple.
There is no way around this, unless you can prove the genuine nature of the relationship, a visa will not be granted.
