الجواب وبالله التوفيق

1- The Nikah mentioned as per your question did not take place correctly as the requirement for witnesses did not get fulfilled. In order for the Nikah to be valid, two adult sane Muslim males or one adult sane Muslim male and two adult sane Muslim females must be present as the witnesses. 


2- The presence of a qadhi is not mandatory for the Nikah to be valid, if there is an acceptance from the couple for the proposal of Nikah in the presence of the witnesses (described above), it will be considered valid.


3- If the Nikah was performed as per the Shar‘ai rules and regulations then ruju(reconciliation) can be performed with the ba‘ina(divorced woman with whom reconciliation is possible) during or after her period of Iddat by performing Nikah with her.
