Marrying a new Muslim girl without the consent of her parents

Q: I am a muslim guy and I want to marry a girl. She is also a born muslim but her father is not muslim and her mother is also a muslim. So I want to marry her but we dont want to tell her parents about the nikah and will tell them later. Please advise me. Should i marry her withot her parents consent? Is it right and after nikah we have decided that the girl will live with their parents until we tell them about our nikaah.

A: The nikaah will be valid.

And Allah Ta'ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
