Deleted Volume Grop

I accidently removed my volume group using "vgremove" command. I had one logical volume in volume group which was also automatically removed. Unfortunately it seems like there is no backup made before deleting vg in /etc/lvm/backup nor in /etc/lvm/archive folders. Is there a way I can restore my vg configuration file and rebuild logical volume and volume gropu from that file?
