Jokingly getting married

Q: Does a nikah done as a joke (just for the sake of fun) in a friends gathering without the presence of the wali, become valid?

Is it valid when the girl says yes just because of peer pressure of acceptance in a group and without having the knowledge of the sensitivity of this subject/issue of nikah.

A: If all the preconditions of nikaah are met the nikaah is valid.

As above.

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