Will home servicing affect my warranty?

My automobile is due in for warranty work.  When booking it in the woman asked if it had been serviced.   Obviously I have had it serviced, but not at the main dealers. I have a friend who is a mechanic who I trust. He serviced it for me for a fraction of the dealer cost, using genuine parts.  

Unfortunately, because he serviced it at my house rather than at the garage where he works he hasn't stamped my service book. Is this likely to affect my warranty? I have the receipts for the original parts used but no stamp!

Any help would be appreciated.
